Hello and welcome to my blog! I'm one of the stops along the way in Denami's February 'Adorable Animals' blog hop!
You should have arrived here from the lovely Lisa Elton
. For a full list of participants visit the Denami Blog.
I don't get a ton of time to stamp anymore, but when the chance came up to pull out these little kitty stamps again I couldn't resist! Here are my cards:
I knew I wanted to group the kitties and use some grey. I was also wanting to use my houndstooth background stamp (can't get enough of that pattern these days!). After that it was just a matter of putting it all together.
Like a good stamper, I knew I needed to practice my layout a few times. The first results didn't sit well for the card I wanted to make, so I decided to dig into my scrap stash. The gold almost jumped out of the pile at me, so I fidgeted a bit and ended up with a second card out of the exercise!
I really like using animal stamps on textured paper. I think it adds something nice when I color them in. I used my colored pencils in the same way I would use Copic markers (including little shadows underneath them).
What do you think, should I add one more kitty to this?
Hope you liked these, or that they gave you some ideas of your own!
