Here it is, time for another new challenge at Paper Funday. Our theme this month is "Cute Critters" and we have two delightful sponsors: Eureka Stamps and Polkadoodles Stamps. I used an image from Eureka Stamps called "Leaning Cat." Isn't that smile fantastic?
Did you know that next Sunday, August 8, is International Cat Day? My cats are already planning the biggest party of the year, with cans of tuna and packets of fishy treats included! lol While I am truly an animal person, I tend to make many more cat than dog cards and I think it's because they come in such a wide variety of colors. I know this one is pretty simple in his black fur with pink nose and mouth, but I love coloring calicos and tabby cats! Who ever saw a calico dog? lol
Colored with ProMarkers and white gel pen, then cut with a QuicKutz square die. The die cut CS piece behind the image was cut with a die from Gina Marie. The satin ribbons are both from Really Reasonable Ribbon and I added flower/sequin to the hand-tied bow. I really love how the black and pink color combo worked out.
What I love most about this card is that everything on it (including the CS on which the image was printed) was put together all from scraps. Even the flower bit inside the sequin on the bow was a leftover from punched holographic CS! The bow was tied from a scrap bit of ribbon and the ribbon 'wrap' around the card front was a scrap barely long enough to tuck behind the image piece. If you notice the pink die cut piece has a flat edge because the scrap wasn't big enough to fill the entire die.
