Hello and welcome!
Did you hear there is a cat lovers hop hosted by Janis of Her Peaceful Garden going on right now?? This is only my second year participating but had so much fun seeing all the cat- themed projects last year that I made sure to join in again this year. And the time has arrived!
And here is the card I made using a cute Christmas cat by Penny Black.
This cat is part of the set Gather Around, stamped with Versafine Onyx ink on Bristol Vellum paper. I recently decided to purchase the new Distress watercolor pencils and that's what I used here for coloring. I really didn't need another watercolor medium but since I like the range of distress ink colors and thought these would be something I could use for watercoloring while in the living room without having to bring all Distress ink pads downstairs, I decided to purchase them. I have set 1 and set 3. While I do like the intensity of actually distress inks more, these are a good alternative when not in my craft room.
The patterned paper is from a 6x6 paper pack I recently purchased at Hobby Lobby. Sentiment is also from a Penny Black set - Dear Santa. It works so well with all the cute critter stamps. I just love it!
Before assembling the card I used a dots stencil on the background. Then finished with some red and white twine.
By the way - if you haven't heard yet - I'm planning for another Year in Review hop at the end of the year where we will share our favorite creations of 2022 and I am looking for co-hosts. The sign- up is now available and you can read all about it HERE or simply click the logo below:
