I am so excited to be part of Deck the Halls with Inky Paws 2018 Blog Hop with Newton’s Nook Designs! As a cat lover (I have two furry kitties) I cannot resist to any kitty images, so of course kitty images from them attracted my eyes.
I wanted to create something simple but cool at the mean time. The idea of creating a white border came up to my mind. I masked four edges of a rectangle watercolor panel using wide washi tapes. Then I ink blended uncovered area using Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Worn lipstick and Tumbled Glass. I stamped snowflake and holly images from Newton’s Holiday Mischief Stamp set using Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Then I stamped the sentiment ” meowy christmas!” with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
For the main character of this card, a kitty cat in Christmas mood. I stamped the image onto a piece of Neenah Solar white 80lbs Card stock paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with copic markers. I hand cut the image with my trusty scissors. If you want to save some time, you could purchase the Coordinating dies for it. I attached this kitty with a Christmas hat to the inked background with a piece of foam tape. To make this simple card not so boring. I purposely resized the panel a little smaller than A2 size. I adhered it onto an A2 sized card base with foam stripes to create 3D dimensions.
