Winter Watcher Version 1

Greetings and Happy Tuesday! TTIC is off this week, so I wanted to bring you my very first card using Sweet Pea Stamps! They are Ching-Chou Kuik’s amazing artwork and ALL of these stamps are simply beautiful. The stamp I have is called Winter Watcher. And, being that I am a cat lover, this stamp is quite meaningful for me!

I kept the card itself simple, because I wanted the image to of course be the focus! And how could it not be??? It’s just gorgeous! I colored it in with my Spectracolor Pencils. And I quite like the end result!

I am especially happy with the cat’s eye and the cape. I used a cardstock with a lot of tooth this time, I wanted to give it a lot of texture, but my next version (which I already started) uses a stock that is much smoother. I hope to have it done tonight…

Now please head on over to the Sweet Pea Stamps Blog for some magical inspiration! You will be wowed!!!
