Feline 50

Hi there

This is a card I made earlier in the year for a friend celebrating her 50th birthday.  

She is a cat-lover so a kitty just had to feature in the design...

I began with a die cut panel and stamped the kitty image off the bottom edge, then the sentiment which is part of a longer stamp.  Next I stencilled the balloon off the top edge, adding light and shade with the blending, before then stamping the numbers on the balloon.  I used a black fine liner pen to hand draw the balloon string ties around the balloon and the cat's tail.  To finish, I coloured the cat and the box with Copic markers and adhered the panel flat to the card base.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Simon Says Stamp - Furry Cat & Box; Lawn Fawn - Scripty Sayings; Clearly Besotted - Got Your Number
  • Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Versafine - Onyx Black; Distress Ink - Picked Raspberry
  • Stencil: MFT - Big Balloons
  • Die: Create a Smile - Cool Cuts Double Stitched Rectangles
  • Coloured with Copics

Challenge entries:
