"Every dog has his day -- but the nights are reserved for the cats."
I am back with my second post of the day and another entry into MFP Oriental Sketch Challenge. This time I did a straight interp of this week's sketch:
I used my MFP Lucky You stamp set for this card with the cheery little kitty. Everything is very straight forward with no oysters or anything! Ha.
I liked how the stamping on the DCWV paper (scrap from earlier card posted today!) has the texture showing through. It looks almost needlepoint or something. I should have taken a close-up of it, but I was trying to make this a one photo post! (You can get a closer look by right clicking on it, hit view photo, and magnify from there.)
I stamped the coin image onto mulberry paper for an Oriental feel. I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink for stamping and inking the edges of the panels.
I mounted everything on a glittery DCWV card base and finished up with some stick-on pearls. Love how the simple geometrics of the Oriental sketches adapt so well for very calm and relaxing cards.
Thanks for stopping by again today. Don't forget that I will have a Christmas giveaway soon....so be watching for it next week! Yay!!!
