Purr-fect Friend

Hi, Friends.....

I am here with a sweet card with an adorable image that I have been meaning to color for the longest time.  I had it all stamped and ready to color, but hadn't got to it.  

Then I saw the irresistible inspiration on this week's Papercrafter's Corner - Magazine Monday challenge and knew I needed to use it!!  

I colored my image with Distress Ink Markers scribbled on an acrylic block and picked up with my waterbrush.  I am much more comfortable coloring that way than by using my markers directly on the paper!  I don't have all the marker colors, so I used my Distress Ink pads the same way for the red and gray.  

I used my Pink & Main - Scallop Waves die set to make a whimsical border on the cute apple patterned paper.  It reminds me of a stylized fall leaf.  My sentiment is from the My Favorite Things - Cat-itude stamp set and stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.  The image panel and mat are die cut with My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Square STAX die set.

Hope you enjoyed seeing this little gal and her kitty friend.  Reminds me of my granddaughter!!  Awwwww....

Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
