I colored this kitty with Memento Markers. I used the coordinating die to cut him out, and then I created my background. I cut down a piece of white cardstock to 4" x 5 1/4." I applied some Twisted Citron and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink to my craft mat and sprayed it with water. I dragged the piece of cardstock through it, heat set it and reinked it a few times until I was happy with the results. Then I made sure it dried completely before I went on to my next step. I also inked up the oval that I would be using for the sentiment.
After the Oxides were dry, I used Festive Berries Distress Ink (not the Oxide) on a retro squares stencil (from Dreamweaver/Stampendous) with a small ink dauber. I allowed this to dry while I made my card base. I inked up the edge of my sentiment with Cottage Ivy Memento Ink and adhered it and the kitty to the background, and then to the card base.
