To A Cat...

this would be the ultimate Valentine's Day card!! *grin*

The 20th of each month, the Dirty Dozen Alumni host a challenge. Last month I was just too overwhelmed with my first month being on the team! This month however I've got it under control.........easy peasy *wink* Here are the guidelines for this month.

  • Challenge Focus: A Valentine's Day/Love-y Dove-y card

  • Required Element: Texture!! Anything you can *feel* (ie: Fun Flock, Crystal Effects, Embossing/Debossing, velvet ribbon...

  • Restricted Element: No RED!! Pink is ok...but no red...let's see what other colors we can use for Valentine's Day!

Guess it's my silly sense of humor, but I picked the cute cat so proud of his present, from Whipper Snapper. It's colored with Copic markers, masked and airbrushed. I tried a trick on the cat I learned from BC Sherrie on her blog using blending solution.

The card is a "Z" fold...basically, fold the card like normal then fold back the front. I used a small circle punch for the corners. I think there is plenty of texture going on here don't you?!! The black layer is "fauxed" by taking my black Copic marker around the edges of white cardstock.

Just For You Cat by Whipper Snapper
ink: Black Soot Distress by Ranger
paper: Georgia Pacific white, Prism Island Mist med, Sunflowers lt
other schtuff: Copic markers, Copic ABS, Blending solution, circle punch, Cuttlebug/embossing folder, Spellbinders Large/Small Labels, twine, foam dimensionals

Thanks for stopping!

Such a cute cat - being city kids these days my cats are indoor kittys - but one of them 'hunts' small stuffed animals (a green and yellow turtle is his fav - he finds it no matter my DS hides it).
great card - love the colored paws and tail!!!
