"Cat names are more for human benefit. They give one a certain degree more confidence that the animal belongs to you."
I can't believe it!! It has been a full four weeks since I have had time to make more than one card or project in a week. I've just barely gotten a Unity FWF project done each Friday. Grandma-ing, mom-ing, and wife-ing has been keeping me busy, busy, busy....and tired!!!
The current Waffle Flower Challenge has such a beautiful inspiration photo and color palette in cool tones that I really wanted to participate using my new Waffle Flower - On My Mark stamp set. (THANKS, WF!!!)
I just love the looooooong cat on this stamp set, don't you? I was dying to curve the stamp to make the cat stand up against something!! :) In this case, I tried to make a little outdoor scene with the curious kitty sneaking up on the butterfly. Guess what her wish is! :)
I already had the lattice background made from scraps as a card starter and added the other elements. I stamped the cat in Onyx Black Tsukineko - Versafine Ink and then heat embossed it with black powder for a lovely deep black coat.
I debated whether or not to use the vellum. I like all the white space on the inspiration photo and there wasn't any on my card, so the vellum tones down the colors. Also, I was afraid the butterfly would get lost amid the lattice work in the bright background, so putting the little thing on top of the vellum keeps it in sight. Of, course, you can't see the glossy black coat of the cat with the vellum over top, but she is still visible so I think I like it with the vellum.
The little sentiment is from the same set. I stamped and heat-embossed it the same way I did for the little huntress. My family wasn't too impressed with this card (What do they know??? lol...), but I really like it! Hope you do, too.
Have a lovely rest of the weekend!!!
