Heart Kitty Shaker Card

Hi, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a shaker card that I made for Brian for Valentine's Day from the kitties! I love this month's digi from Gerda Steiner Designs called Love You Kitten!  I received the kitten image for free because I joined Gerda's challenge last month - it's a progressive challenge! Make sure you check it out so you can receive a cute image from Gerda each month for free!

I copied the kitten image and made three of them so I could stack them one on top of the other - I did this digitally. I've been enjoying the trend of stacking animals and I wanted to try it!  I coloured the kittens with Prismacolor pencils so they would look like our kitties, and then fussy-cut.

I was inspired by the colour challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations:

For the background I used the watercolour smooshing technique with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. I stamped the xoxo sentiment (Clearly Besotted) three times on the watercolour panel and then embossed it with Cuttlebug Cross Your Heart.  I filled the shaker with all kinds of hearts and sequins from my stash. The frame was die-cut with Waltzingmouse Stamps Scalloped Stitched Rectangles and Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles,

Your Kitty Valentine shaker card is wonderful, KT! Brian will smile and be appreciative- it's fun using those incredible shiny metallic papers, and the frame is gorgeous in that die cut. Will he want 3 kittens to help stave away the cold during your chilly Canadian winter days? I've been very much enjoying your sweet shaker cards! XO
