Happy Purr-thday

Hello friends!  I had a relaxing low key crafty Sunday yesterday and I was happy I had the chance to create a few cards.  Today's card is for the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #148.
I used the My Favorite Things Cat-itude stamp set and die-namics to create a birthday card.  I started out with a white card base, then stamped a piece of watercolor paper using the little flowers from the stamp set and Versa Mark ink so that I could heat emboss the flowers in white.  Once that was done, I used some shaded lilac distress ink to watercolor my background.  The next step was stamping my sentiment onto a die cut tag, adding bakers twine and foam tape to the back of the tag and adhering it to my watercolored background.  Then I added my die cut, stamped and watercolored cat (I used mustard seed & spiced marmalade distress inks) and flower images, popping up the cat with foam tape.

Pin It

I love this, Lynn! Fabulous take on the sketch! How you coloured in the cat is fantastic!
I ordered this set and can't wait to get it -- I'm looking forward to making cards for my Sunday School girls with it!
