It's Friday, it's Friday!!!
I hope the day has started off fabulously for everyone!
We have a soft and fuzzy new release for you today over at Sami Stamps. This one touched my heart because I just love my kitties, and Sami drew us a whole release full of them!
I chose to use Persian Kitty #2. I had to do a little searching online to get some coloring ideas because I didn't want to just have a white cat on my card. It may not be the exact coloring of a Persian, but I still love how it looks. Reminds me of my little kitty that I had when I was younger. Her name was PurrBox because that's all she did was purr :)
The punched border is from Martha Stewart and I paired it with some pretty striped paper to go along with the new challenge we have started at Sami Stamps :)
For the image, I wasn't entirely sure how I wanted to put it on the card. My first thought was to have some sort of bed of flowers behind it so that the kitty was just sitting in a flower garden. But none of the flower images I had really worked all that well. I pulled stuff off my desk and laid it on the card, trying several things, until I pulled one of my left over circle frames over and tried that. It clicked! I wanted it to have a wooden feel though, so I cut 3 layers out of some Kraft cardstock and then lightly inked them in brown for some dimension.
Printed and colored up my kitty, and used an image from a previous release (Spring Branch) for a little floral decoration on the circle. A few pearls, and a sweet sentiment from Winnie & Walter, and it was done!! I adore how this card turned out!!
Now, run over to Sami Stamps, check out the rest of this cuddle worthy release, and then join in our Stripes challenge!!
