Just for You

I've been meaning to color in this fun cat stamp and turn it into a card, and finally got around to it today. I started out using watercolor pencils but didn't like the end result. The color wasn't going on smoothly enough without warping the paper. So I switched to alcohol markers and blended everything together. It was still a little rough-looking, but I like to think it looks like cat fur now! After embossing a background with a folder by Cuttlebug and using dies by Sizzix for the circles, I pulled out some fun fabric tape and punched hearts to finish it off. I know it kind of looks like a Valentine card, because of the red, white and hearts, but it's actually a birthday card for a bloggy friend (and she probably knows who she is!). Inside reads, Make A Wish. I was inspired by the Cats Only Challenge on Ike's blog.

Power Poppy Feb Challenge: use coloring medium you don't usually use: I've been using my watercolor pencils lately but switched mid-way to alcohol markers and layered the two mediums for a change. powerpoppy.blogspot.com/2016/02/a-bit-of-sunshine-headed-...

 

A Colorful Journey: neglected supplies.. This stamp has been languishing in my stash for a long long time so it was time I gave it some love. That fabric tape has also never been used and now that I re-discovered it, you can bet I'll be using it more often! acolorfuljourney.com/colorful-word-pebbles-gelli-printed-...
