Jenny Gropp - You are here!

I've been in the mood to color... I chose this Gary Robertson image, Cat Nap, to play with for this week's friendship challenge. I folded my card base and then ran the folded piece of paper through my Vagabond with the Border Die to create the perfectly lined up edges. After adding a couple of layers to mat my image, I used the new photo corner dies on the opposite corners to embellish.

 I used a lot of Copics on the image. Mainly because I was just playing around and watching Netflix while I colored. My cat was originally grey, but I kept coloring and then it wasn't grey any more!

Chair Legs - E55, E57, E59
Cat - C5, C7, C9, E34
Shading under chair - W1, W2
All other colors were mixed up and used on the quilt.

I guess they knew that I was posting a kitty card! Typically as soon as I turn the light tent on... here come the cats. Tonight was no exception. Luckily, I got my card pics in quickly. They love to sit in the tent when the lights are on... diva cats for sure that want to be in the spotlight. Z is the black cat and the oldest, Thumbelina is the little sister that constantly antagonizes him. As soon as the lights went out in the tent they were off and running. They look a little menacing in this picture, but they are both sweeties! 

 Here's the up close. I used the Thinking of You sentiment from the new clear set Basic Greetings, love this set it has every greeting you could need! I inked it up with brown ink and then tapped it in black to get a mixed of the two colors.

On the inside, of course I had to add a little kitty die! I used a photo corner die again as well.
