Today is the start of a new Inky Paws Challenge and it is all for the pink lovers out there 🙂
For my card I created a watercolour background using Zig Color Real Brush markers, just scribbling some on Bristol Smooth cardstock and swiping it with a wet baby wipe. I love the ease and beauty of this technique. I also distressed it with water droplets and dabbed it off with a paper towel. When it was all dry, I die cut a stitched rectangle from it and used the Mama Elephant starry backgrounds cover plate to cut the little stars. I backed this with some silver glitter paper.
I then stamped and coloured the kitties from the Newton’s Christmas cuddles stamp set using Copic markers and simple shading. I used the coordinating dies to cut my couple. I also die cut a stitched snowbank and a picket fence (Lawn Fawn dies) from white cardstock.
The sentiment is partly die cut from vellum and pink foil cardstock (Simon Says Stamp die) and stamped on the bottom of the snowbank (MFT You are a star stamp set).
I assembled the card, I used 3D foam tape to pop up the kitties. As a finishing touch I used glossy accent on the scarves and a mini pompom on the cap. Prefect for Valentine’s Day.
I hope you like my card and got inspired to play along with us on the Inky Paws Challenge. You have 2 weeks to link up your project and you might be the lucky one to win the 20USD gift certificate to the Newton’s Nook Design online store.
Have a wonderful week,
