As soon as I saw this stamp at Newton's Nook, I knew it would be coming to live in my stash. I actually purchased it within hours of it becoming available. I am sending my Dad a card a week until I visit him and he loves the cat cards. I mostly try to color them to represent Digger and Jack.
I stamped the stamp twice, colored it and fussy cut both. On the second stamped image, I cut only a portion to vary the look. I can't send just one cat! I found some perfect Lawn Fawn paper for the background. I also traced over all the lines with a black marker once it was colored. It gives such a crisp image. I love keeping the paws white, and I colored them with a white gel pen when everything else was done.
September is my blog anniversary month, and often the month I visit my Dad during the fall. I get to see him and my girlfriends and visit a few of my old stomping grounds. I will pre-post some cards while I am visiting since my card making supplies will be very limited.
