Now I've never been big on the Halloween holiday, but I JUST HAD TO DO IT!! :) I've had this cute kitty face for a few days now, but didn't have it mounted yet. When I sat down to try the sketch challenge for today, I just couldn't come up with anything. So, I inked up this little fella and came up with this card.
I had my hubby cut a piece of wood for him, but I still don't have any rubber cement, so I layed the stamp on the block, inked him up and then layed my c.s. on top and rubbed it all over. I worked! For the time being anyway ;)
The celery c.s. is stamped with Linen bg and then cuttlebugged with the swirls folder. I used pumpkin c.s. and SU!'s retired holiday stencils and then I sponged pumpkin ink in various places. Drew in lines with markers. His paws are on pop dots for dimension. The scallop is made with the slit punch--I prefer that method to scallop scissors because I don't cut straight...but with the punch, you get it straight every time.
I JUST HAVE TO ADD: I saw SCSer, Mothermark's gallery that she has set aside just for this kitty--she calls him "Rocky", that I fell in love with--and I KNOW my MIL will absolutely treasure as she's such a cat collector--real ones AND ceramic! So, I got my inspiration from her gallery HERE. Check it out--tons of really creative and fun "Rocky" cards. THANKS!!
SO, you've prolly noticed that my blog is different--AGAIN! :) I just really like color. That brown was not setting well with me. I also realized that my previous blog colors (celery and apricot) pretty much went really well with my new Fall picture banner, so I went back to that...except I did make them a tad darker. What do ya think??
