Hi! It’s Sue. It’s sunny here in Vancouver and it’s getting more difficult to stay inside to craft. I guess I need to find things that I could do outside. I love cats. So when, Hero Arts came out with some cat stamps, I knew that I just had to have them. Today’s card, uses a Hero Arts wood stamp, E6217, Purring Kitty.
Here’s my card
Isn’t the kitty the cutest? I stamped the kitty and coloured it with Copics. I was a bit stuck with what to do next. I created the background adding distress inks with ink blending tools, incorporating pale blues, grey and purple. It created the added interest I was looking for (so much better, in my opinion) than a plain white background. I found a complementary scrap piece of cardstock for the horizontal piece. I decided to add a die cut label to mat the kitty panel and popped it up with dimensionals. I decided to leave the card without a sentiment, so that I could use it for one of my cat friends – maybe as a hello, or get well or happy birthday.
My card is pretty much the opposite of the current challenge here at a2z Scrapbooking where the challenge is
