Catnip Tea

     I'm playing again in Part 2 of the progressive challenge at Sparkle and Glitter, the Rick St. Dennis blog.  I dearly love all his elegant ladies but the freebie for this time was right up my alley.  Take a look and you'll see what I mean.  Doesn't that cat look like he's had one cup too many of catnip tea?  lol

I based my design on the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches
and my colors came from the color challenge at The Outlawz.


     The image is colored with ProMarkers, then die cut and matted.  I chose that die because it carried on the 'spacey-I'm-looped-on-catnip' look I wanted.  I found that fabulous background paper in an old stack which has been hanging out in my stash for a couple of years at least.  The flowers were punched, colored with markers, and had beads added to them before putting them on the card front.

     The sentiment was printed with a computer font, then hand cut and matted.  Finally, the white bow is one of those I make up by the dozens and keep in my stash for a quick-to-grab future use.  I guess this qualifies as a 1-2-3 card: 1 bow, 2 critters and 3 flowers.  :-D

     Well, this is my second post of the day and now I'm off to teach a class.  Enjoy your weekend and Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
