So....did I get your attention with my catchy title?! Sometimes my ideas work out, and sometime they don't! I needed a sympathy card for a dear friend from church; he and his wife rescue cats and so I thought I would make a card for him using the stamp set Sitting Here, which I HAD to have and have rarely used! I thought the Fab Friday sketch was nice:
I didn't really feel like coloring in the image, so I thought I'd do a monochromatic color scheme, using some Urban Underground DSP and Delightful Dijon and So Saffron inks:
I stamped the pillow on the same DSP, stamped the cat and colored it with a blender pen, then fussy-cut it out, and added some ribbon and cardstock banners as well as a little twine bow. The issue came about when I adhered the cat with a dimensional:
I always use dimensionals to adhere things that I want to stand out...however, in this case, my cat now looks like it is floating above the bench cushion. Sigh....I left it there, although it makes me giggle a little. Perhaps they won't notice the floating cat and will just enjoy the encouraging note I put inside!
A little photo, pre-demolition! Her class was having a concert and she chose this dress to wear!
Enjoy your day--be blessed! Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Stamp Ink Paper challenge!
