Sailboat Kitty

This is a birthday card I made for a former boss.  I brayered a glossy panel with rainbow ink, stamped the cat in black, layered with black, turquoise, and black cardstock and affixed to a green card.  I stamped the sentiment in black on a green scrap, cut by hand into a tag, outlined in black, and tied with fibre.  Here are the supplies I used for this card:
  • Stamps:  Cat (Magenta), sentiment (The Old Island Stamp Company)
  • Ink:  Kaleidacolor Caribbean Sea, StazOn Onyx Black
  • Cardstock:  Bazzill, Recollections
  • Glossy Panel:  Unknown from my stash
  • Fibre:  Dollarama
