Cattitude Monday - Thinking of You

Good Morning! -Welcome to Monday and the start of another work week.  For your viewing pleasure today I actually have a card to share with you! - I love it when I'm able to stamp using some of my "cat" stamps.  I don't have a lot and need to build up my collection but I am trying to utilize the ones that I do own.



My card uses 2 of the upcoming "In-Colors" from Stampin'Up! - Kiwi Kiss and Tangerine Tango.

I stamped my cat image (Hero Arts) with Palette Noir Black ink on Watercolor Paper and then watercolored the image with an Aqua Painter and Reinkers.  I have to say that I am still "water-color" challenged.  For some unexplained reason I have the most difficult time using an Aqua Painter.  I always seem to get either to much water or not enough instead of just the right amount.  I so wish that I could get Anna Wight to come give me lesson on watercoloring.  She is my watercoloring idol!

I added hightlights on my "Mums" with an Orange Spica Glitter pen.  The image was cut out using Nestabilities and mounted on an Tangerine Tango Scallop Circle and pierced. I punched small holes with my Crop-a-dile and threaded through some ribbon (May Arts).

I used some Designer Paper ((We R Memory Keepers - Pewter Press - Noche).  The Orange side was mounted on the Tangerine card stock and then the floral pattern was mounted on Kiwi Kiss. I stamped the sentiment with Kiwi Kiss ink and mounted it on the Tangerine Tango card stock and added 3 More Mustard Brads.  The focal image and sentiment were then mounted using foam mounting tape to complete my card.



Also on today's Cattitude menu is this adorable picture of our newest kitten,  Harley. Let's hope at the end of the day you are able to "Crash" like he did! - Have a great week.
