I love mew forever

Good evening all,

I wanted to share my latest card for the NND Inky Paws Challenge #39 Use a heart. I just felt that the “kissing” cats from the Christmas cuddles set match the upcoming Valentine’s day so well, that I had to use them on a love-themed card.


I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock, applied several distress inks and spritzed it with water. After 20 seconds I dabbed it off with a paper towel and ran it through the Big Shot with a Next Level embossing folder from WRMK.


I stamped, coloured the kitties with Shinhan markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I used a Lawn Fawn heart die to cut a purple heart for the background and a strip of vellum to hold my black embossed sentiment (MFT). I also cut the Forever die from Reverse Confetti 2 times from pink cardstock, and layered them on top of each other under the embossed sentiment.


I always have difficulties with adhering vellum, this time I wrapped it around the inked background panel, and I also added dots of Multi Matte Medium behind the die cut word. After gluing everything in place, I added a bit of clear shimmer with a Spectrum Noir shimmer pen to the collar and ribbon of the cats along with some glossy accent. I made their nose shiny black with a glaze pen.


I will link this project up to the SSS Wednesday Challenge too (Anything goes).
