Quiet Cat and Bamboo

I wanted to share a card with you today. I needed to make some generic cards, and this is what I came up with.

Bella's Lullaby 012 I used a really pretty bamboo stamp, and repeated part of the image a couple of times to make the stalks seem bigger. Then there’s the cat stamp…

Bella's Lullaby 015 I love this cat. He’s so majestic and serene. He reminds me very much of my Tomato. He sometimes looks just like this… and yes, he’s all black. I stamped him 2x and popped up the second time. Spritzed him with Black Gold Glimmer Mist and I thought that the results were just what this cat needed.

Bella's Lullaby 014 In this shot, you can see the flecks of gold from the Glimmer Mist. It’s SO much better in the sunlight. But, at least you can get an idea of what it looks like.

Bella's Lullaby 013 Here’s just another close up shot… See the shadows created by the popped kitty? I also inked the edges around the yellow splattered paper with a brick red and a little black. I think this card is very… chill. And it will work for lots of different occasions, like I intended. It’s simplistic but full enough. Colorful but not over the top. I am really happy with it.
