My friend recently lost her sweet older cat Cleo who had struggled for a while with poor health. This is a picture of her on a camping trip with her family this summer.
I wanted to make my friend a sympathy card coloring the cat like Cleo. I found this sweet image Cat Under Covers from Impression Obsession in my cat stamps drawer.
I placed the stamp in my Misti and inked the face section with Distress Spiced Marmalade ink, wiped off any ink that got on the blanket part, and stamped it onto watercolor paper. Then I inked the top blanket part of the stamp with Distress Broken China, wiping off any of the blue that went on the cats face and stamped it onto the paper. There is a little bit that over lapped and turned green with the mix of colors but I thought it looked ok, sort of like a shadow.
I added Cleo's name in die cut letters using alphanumeric Tiny Type from Tim Holtz/Sizzix and cut the panel with Pierced Feature Frame: Rectangles from PTI. The outside piece of the frame is up on foam dots.
