Bubble Bath Beauty

Hello friends!  Yes, I’m still here! LOTS of fun stuff to share!

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 previously 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 droplets.  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:

  • 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!
