Here it is Wednesday already! I have to tell you that I think today's new release from Squigglefly Inky Paws is just adorable! I'm just going to jump right in and show you the card I made
(click to enlarge)
Isn't the look on the cat's face just too cute? She just looks so proud of herself! I can tell you that I wouldn't be thinking it was so cute if my cat did this in real life! LOL!
Anyway, the details of the card are that I used kraft cardstock for the card base and added a piece of designer paper on the side. I folded the top of the paper over the top of the card. The image didn't require a lot of coloring since I made my cat white. I just used a light gray on the cat and applied some pink to her ears and cheeks. I put a little bit of blue shadow color to the ink bottle.
I drew in my wall line and applied chalk for the floor and wall. I'm not sure you can see in the photograph, but I used a clear glaze pen to go over the ink spill and paw prints so they look wet.
The image panel was layered over some dusty pink card stock that had a border punched on the bottom.
I printed the greeting directly to the card front in the ck becky font (available free here)> I love that font! Then three little bitty pink rain dots were applied beneath it. I think it just turned out really cute. The flower at the top of the card was one of several I got a while back from Oriental Trading company. I pulled the petals off of a green flower and used them for leaves. These flowers aren't quite as nice as the primas, but they are way cheaper!
The weatherman has told me my rainy days have ended for today. It is supposed to be a hot 86 degrees today and I'm not looking forward to that one little bit.
On the plus side, I've got the wallpaper border down in my craft room, well the border that will come down. See, when we moved here this bedroom had a baseball theme to it and there was baseball border at the top of the wall and below the chair rail. My daughter of course didn't want a baseball themed room, so as a quick fix I found a border to go over the baseball border. Fast forward ten years, and the top border will not come off without more scraping than I care to do. I know that it will end up damaging the wall to the point we would have to re-do the drywall, so I'm opting to leave the top border and paint over it. I was afraid there would be a noticeable line where the border ended and the wall began, but when I got home from work yesterday afternoon my husband had started priming the walls and I was happy to see NO LINE! Yay!
Well, I wish you all a happy hump day and thanks for stopping by!
