Thinking of You Kitty

My Candy is here.  I'm a new blogger hoping for 50 followers.

I made this Thinking of You card today after being inspired by several challenges (see below), and I wanted to use my rubber stamps (no digis). 

I covered a white card base with nectarine cardstock, stamped the sentiment in black, and affixed two torn squares:  one a torn dictionary page; the other a nectarine panel onto which I stamped French script and inked the edges.  I stamped the kitty in black on striped DP, die cut into an oval, and layered on a decorative white oval.   I added a strip of black cardstock and then affixed the kitty oval with foam tape.  Lastly, I embellished with three flowers, attached with gem-filled brads, and added six black gems.  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamps:  Kitty (Inkadinkado), French script (Stampin' Up!), sentiment (The Artful Stamper)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black          DP, Flowers, Brads:  Dollarama
  • Cardstock:  Bazzill, Recollections    White Card Base:  Domtar
  • Dies: Nellie's Multiframes - Ovals and Decorative Ovals
  • Gems: Want2Scrap
  • Sketch:  Papertake Weekly (see below)
  • Colour inspiration:  Rockwell Designs (see below)

So bright and the orange looks great with the kitty. It almost makes the cat look like a tabby. Thanks for playing along in another color challenge!
