Wanted to stop in and share a few simple cards I've worked on this week.
Newton's Daydream from one of their recent releases, and I've only gotten to play with it a few times...and none of the attempts turned out all that great (hence why you haven't seen any cards with this stamp yet :) ).
The challenge at Newton's Nook is to use fall colors, and I wanted to find a way to use this sweet little sleeping kitty to enter. So I pulled out some of my other stamps, and found some small leaves that I thought might work well together. I wanted Newton to be sleeping on this giant pile of leaves, but decided to just keep it to a small bed so that things didn't get too cluttered around the image. To achieve the look of a leaf bed, I just stamped Newton first and then masked him off while I stamped the leaves :)
The image turned out so stinking cute! I colored him in like my sweet Ezio...he doesn't seem to make an appearance on my cards as much as Storm and Cloud, mostly because he's a tabby and a little bit more of a challenge for me to color correctly. But he deserved a place on this card!
I kept the rest really simple so the image took center stage...and because while I have tons of ideas swirling in my head and the drive to craft...nothing interesting has been making it out onto paper...but I keep trying!
I'd like to enter this kitty card into the following challenges:
Inky Impressions #180-Flowers and Leaves
Newton's Nook Inky Paws #14-Fall Colors
Ruby's Rainbow #89-Autumn Leaves
My second card also features a prize stamp set, but this time from The Cat's Pajamas called Bearing Flowers.
I didn't have any blue twine that matched well enough, so I took one of my ShinHan markers and ran it over some grey and white striped twine to change the color. Worked perfect and now it matches exactly to my paper :)
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Ooh La La #166-Use a Bow
Penny's Paper Crafty #198-Polka Dots
Sweet Sunday Sketch #239
The Cat's Pajamas #276-Light Grey, Rust, Dark Blue
Hopefully my creativity will come back to me soon so I can get some of these ideas out of my brain. I hate it when the drive is there and nothing works...my mojo has been gone for too long, I need it back!
So, thanks for stopping by!! <3
