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:
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!
