Thinking of You

I haven't sent a card to my Dad in a few weeks.  I like sending him cat cards. He has two adorable skamps Digger and Jack.  And those cats dote on my Dad.  When I visit, I am definitely the interloper and the cats will accept cat treats from me, and enjoy play time...but their cuddles are reserved for my Dad.

Newton's Nook has some adorable cat stamps, I have a couple of sets.  They also have a challenge going right now - Inky Paws - Just One Layer Card.  I had to think of my design on this one. 

I drew a flag banner onto my kraft card base with a white gel pen.  I stamped the cuddled napping cats, masked them off and then added paw prints in Simon Says Ink white pigment ink to the banner area. I used colored pencils from Artist's Loft to color the kitties, smoothed it with some gamsol and highlighted the ears and noses with pink wink of stella.  I added the sentiment from another Newton's Nook set Basket of Wishes.

What a great card, Cat - loved it the moment I saw it on your blog. Congrats on your well-deserved HM! I will have to remember your idea for drawing the banner and the stamped paw print background - one layer cards are such a challenge! Hugs...
