Hello. I hope you are well. I can’t believe summer is over. It’s back to school this week and Autumn is here. I love watching the trees change to beautiful colours but will miss the light evenings.
I am just popping by with a quick card I made today. It was s request from a friend who wanted a card to give someone who was collecting some important results this week. She asked for a cat and the colour purple.
I knew the My favorite Things set ‘meow mix’ had the perfect sentiment. I started by stamping one of the cute cats and a flower from the set and coloured them using copic markers. I then cut them out with my scan and cut.
Next I took a card base and masked off a portion of the card using purple tape so I could use my Distress Oxide inks to blend the purple and pink area. I then Spitzed it with my Tim Holtz water sprayer to get a distressed look to add some texture and interest, using a paper towel on top to soak up the excess water.
To finish the card I stamped the sentiment along the edge of the inked area and adhered the cat and flower. I used a Copic C00 pen under the images to ground them.
I hope you like the card.
Take care for now.
I have also recently set up a Facebook page. Crafty Lemur where I will also be sharing my work.
