Last week at Freshly Made Sketches I was made a Princess again for my rocket card. YAY! I love being a princess, thanks for extending my reign by a week ladies.
This week at FMS they have yet another fantastic sketch that I just couldn’t resist.
It’s a square card sketch and I just love square cards! I turned the sketch so that it would work with the cute Penny Black stamp I wanted to use.
I made this cat grey and white because he reminds me of our cat Indie.
I had coloured the image and I was happy with it, all I had to do was stick it to the card. I had it sitting on my craft table and then I realised Indie had actually jumped up and was sitting right on top of it (of course). I quickly picked him up and there were all these scratches all over my work! AAARRGGHH! I tried to pretend that you couldn’t really notice them much. But I knew you really could :( I had to start all over again!
Because I’m a copics newbie it took me a lot of attempts until I was happy with that balloon again. I won’t embarrass myself by saying just how many tries it took!
Perhaps he was jealous that I was spending more time with this cat than with him?
Here is a photo my daughter took of the culprit looking all innocent like.
Stamps : Penny Black How Becoming, SU Extreme elements
Card : black, basic grey, white, turquoise
Ink : memento black, pacific point, white, grey
Other : copics, brights brads, big shot, tasteful trim
For the side panel I stamped the dots from extreme elements with pacific point and again with white. I really liked the effect this gave, I’ll have to remember to use it again.
