Better Late than Never - Father's Day Feline

Hi guys

As promised, here's the other card that I made month's ago and forgot about, until just finding the photo in the depths of my laptop!

This was the Father's Day card I made for my boyfriend's dad back in the summer.  He loves cats so this image from a fab Katzelkraft set was purrfect! *groan :D

I started by stamping this cute kitty on white cardstock then adding some simple colour pencil detailing to this already sketchy image.  Above the image I stamped the sentiment inside another image of speech bubble.  These were then die cut with a stitched rectangle die.  On a kraft card base I stamped some paw prints in varying sizes in VersaMark ink to create a tone on tone effect.  The panel was then popped up on fun foam.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Katzelkraft - Les Chats Russes; Clearly Besotted - Message Me, You Said It; Dovecraft - Paw Prints
  • Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black; VersaMark
  • Die: MFT Die-namics - Stitched Rectangle Stax
  • Kraft cardstock: Neenah - Desert Storm
  • Coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos

Challenge entries:

Addicted to Stamps and More - Challenge #261 - Anything Goes
The Male Room - Challenge #70 - Anything Goes (not using optional theme this time)

Phew! Ok, I'm now up to date, there are no more photos of unshared cards.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I'll be back tomorrow with my card for the next Muse Challenge and then later in the evening, details of the October CAS Challenge at Happy Little Stampers.

I hope to see you again soon.
