Bubble Bath Beauty

Hello friends!  Yes, I’m still here!  I was hoping to share some photos with you of my crafty retreat and what I was teaching, but when I got home I had some other troubles to deal with and didn’t get a chance to make a post for it, but I will  hopefully get to it this week so you can see what was happening!  LOTS of fun stuff!! 🙂

Today, I have a silly kitty card to share with you today:

Vicki-Bath Cat-May7

Oh my, that face just really cracks me up!!  It’s been several years since I have ever had to give a cat a bath, but I believe that’s pretty much how they feel about water in general.  I have used this Whimsy Stamps digital image called Bath Cat by Crissy Armstong.  (It was preciously released as a rubber cling stamp, but now you can also get it in digital format if you prefer that!)

I started out my card with a piece of white cardstock and clear heat embossed several of the solid circle images from the Whimsy Stamps Circles Circles Circles clear stamp set.  I then took a few of the distress ink colors and blended them over the heat embossed circles.  The ink resisted those and then I spritzed it with some water and dapped it with a paper towel for water dropplets.  I heat embossed the sentiment with white EP and cut it out in a banner to attach over my background.

The circle inked background was corner chomped on two of the corners and then I placed it over a blue A2 sized top folding card base which I also corner chomped the same two corners on that as well.  I then added the image panel and popped it up over some craft foam to attach to the front of the card.  I then cut off the edge of the circle with my scissors and lastly added some clear sequins to the design.

Here’s a closer look at the coloring I’ve done on the kitty.  I’ve used the following Copics to color him in with:  (You can purchase Copic markers at Whimsy Stamps by Clicking HERE.)

  • Kitty – W7, W5, W3, W1, R11, R00
  • Bathtub – B24, B21
  • Bubbles – BG000
  • Duckie – Y17, Y15, Y13

After I cut the image out with a circle die, I sponged around the edges of it with some of the distress ink I used on the background.  I used a Wink of Stella glitter pen on some of the bubbles and then used some Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops on the water drops.

This one gave me a chuckle and sometimes even when you are feeling yucky, you just want someone to tell you that you are beautiful!

Thanks for dropping in today!  I’ll see you again soon!

  1. It’s a darling kitty! LOL I actually have only ever given one cat a bath! Never needed to after that. They are pretty fastidious as long as they are healthy. Your kitty certainly looks “miffed” and personally affronted by the insinuation that she needs a bath! Cute card, Vicki! I’m looking forward to your crafty retreat photos! hugs, de
