2016 Cat Lovers Hop


Today I'm sharing a card I made for the 2016 Cat Lovers Hop!! This hop is is right up my alley, I love cats! I have many cat stamps in my stash and at least a few I haven't used yet, know that I think about it!  When I have my own place again and unpacked I'm getting a couple cats!!

I am also entering this into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes!

My card features Art Impressions Cat Stacker, such a cute set!! I started by stamping the stack of cats on some watercolor cardstock. I squiggled the Distress markers on AI's palette and used some water and a paint brush to color the cats. A little soft blue around the cats and a little gray for a ground.

Next, I stamped the sentiment in brown ink. I added a few enamel dots that matched around the card. Last I added the panel to a white card base.

  12. I love the coloring of your card - I am always afraid to do watercoloring. I did this same stamp, but I used Copics.

  13. I have to get this stamp set - I've had my eye on it since I first saw it - it's SO cute! I love how you colored all the kitties differently - just like in real life. Christi ~ StampinDiva@yahoo.com ~ USA
