and this second R.A.K. is from my good friend Kelly of KL Stampin N Scrappin! She is just full of ♥ surprises ♥ She sent me this awesome stamp called Porch View by Stampendous with my last order as a gift---because she's so kind and generous and has outstanding customer service--and because I'm just soooo likeable, heeheee---OK, I just HAD to throw that in!! LOL. Kelly, you are the sweetest and I'm so glad we've become such good friends. Thank you so much for all you do!! This stamp is sooo perfect for a card I really need to make for my MIL right now. She collects cats like you wouldn't believe!! She has a trophy case full of kitty knick-knacks, has a row of those plainted plates with kitties on them from the Bradford Exchange Co., kitty clocks, etc--you get the point! lol. So I sat right down to make her this card.
This is a white on white card---the black is just my photo set up to make the card show up. I used the Curvy Rectangle Nesties to cut the card base and the image layer. I am in ♥ now with these Nesties!! The CC on SCS this week was to make an all white card --with other colors of ink, but only white cardstock, which I did, but the other part was to make it a 1-layered card, which I did not. In fact I used pop dots behind the stamped layer for dimension. But I just like it this way better. I've been feeling pretty good lately about my coloring skills, however one thing I'm not good at is shading! I really need help figuring out where the lighting should hit. SO...what's a girl to do?? COPY of course!! I did try to copy the image on the stamp itself, LOL. Come on, you know you wouldda done the same! ☺ Just kidding.
