I'm so glad the week is over! I just need to make it through today and tomorrow and then I finally get to see Matthew again! It's been a painfully tough week without him here. I always tell myself I'm okay and strong enough to be alone...but that's so not true! I totally depend on him!
But I've been able to keep myself pretty busy! Actually, so busy that I almost didn't get a card done in time for our new release at Sami Stamps! Which is a shame because it's all about cats...how could I miss a cat release! I decided that just wasn't happening and stayed up super late to get a card put together. Once I thought up the idea, the whole thing came together pretty quick, which is usually the case with Sami Stamps images. They just radiate inspiration!
The kitties, which is the Sneaky Kitties 2 image (love it!!), was printed on Ranger Watercolor paper. I used some Inktense pencils and a water brush to get a really quick color down on the kitties. I always struggle with water brushes. The water flows too quickly out of them, and since I'm a control freak, it's too hard for me to get the style and details I like with that much water. But for these soft kitties it was perfect!
Once the kitties were colored, I trimmed out the middle of the panel to create a frame. I white heat embossed a couple of sentiments from the Sending Hoping Wishing stamp set from WPlus9. The Wishing is on vellum, which I then trimmed out and mounted with some foam tape. The rest is embossed onto some black cardstock and mounted below the vellum.
I finished the card off with a nice scattering of Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and that was it!
Be sure to stop by Sami Stamps to see this uber cute release!!!
Thanks for visiting!
