Miss You

The card I'm sharing today is for 3 separate challenges: The Challenge #41, Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

I used the Storybook 1 die from Pretty Pink Posh to cut out the frame for my kitties and sentiment. I next masked off each area and stamped the images. I colored them in with copics and then adhered the frame on top of the stamped piece. I cut some patterned paper for the background and assembled the whole card. I added some Glossy Accents to the cats' noses and the pads on the gray kitty's feet.

A close up so you can see the little hint of shine on the cats. I will admit, I used my kitty, Alex, as the inspiration for the gray kitty. He's mottled gray and white and absolutely cuddly! The other kitty was inspired by a friend's kitty, Hector. I love ginger kitties!

I used the sketch for the challenge to help set up the concept for the card and the other two challenges were to use a stamp and a die cut. Easy-peasy!

Stamps: Playful Kittens (Simon Says Stamp), Sentiment from In My Heart (Mama Elephant)
Dies: Storybook 1 (Pretty Pink Posh), Stitched Borders 3 (Pretty Pink Posh)
Paper: Whisper White, Patterned paper from Lawn Fawn
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics (W1, W3, W5, R02, Y21, Y24, Y27)
