A Haunting Kitty

Good morning, Friends! It's only Thursday. Ugh! But if I make it through then it will be Friday! Yay!! Lol! No bike races this weekend so I will be able to get a lot of stuff done! And I need to!

Today's card was inspired by the super simple sketch at Freshly Made!

  • Card base is Crumb Cake
  • Adhere a piece of Happy Haunting designer paper to card base
  • On a piece of Very Vanilla, stamp the greeting from Haunt Ya Later stamp set using Basic Black archival ink
  • Adhere panel to a piece of Basic Black card stock
  • Tie a piece of Basic Black stitched satin ribbon around panel and adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp the kitty image onto a piece of Very Vanilla using Basic Black archival ink
  • Color the kitty in using an aqua painter and Smoky Slate ink
  • Use Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder to add color to the ears and eyes and use a Basic Black marker for the nose
  • Cut the kitty out and adhere to card with dimensionals
Super simple!
