Purr-fect Day

Happy Friday!
Stopping in to share a fun little card with you using another image from our latest release at Sami Stamps!
This card features the Line of Whiskers image:
The first thing I worked on for this card was the fence that they are all perched on.  I took a piece of the Essentials by Ellen woodgrain paper and added 2 colors of distress ink - the first layer was Frayed Burlap.  I used a lot of pressure with my blending pad to get the ink down into the grain pattern.  Then I want over top of that with the Ground Espresso color.  This time I used a really light hand so that it just covered the top detail.

I really wanted the light grain pattern to show through, and using two tone ink blending gave me the perfect result for that!

Then I printed out my kitty image and colored it up with my pencils.  I just adore Sami's cat images!  They always make me smile, and of course I can't resist coloring them up like my sweet kitties :)

I trimmed them out and added foam tape to the back.  But before adding them to my card base, I used a diagonal brick stencil and added some yellows to the background, then splattered it with some water to get a bit more detail and texture.  After that dried, I adhered the kitties and the fence down.

The clouds were die cut from a Mama Elephant Landscape Trio die and then I simply stamped a fun Newton's Nook sentiment across the top.

Finished the whole thing off with a little twine!!
