cat and poppy

This was inspired by last weeks Rainbow Lady challenge, eyes.- I never got around to doing it last week! I have been searching through my collection for cat stamps to make cards for my local cat rescue centre at the moment. I coloured the Stampenndous stamp with markers - the backing papers are from the Jayne Netley Mayhew cd from Joanna Sheen. I did make this the 4x4 size requested just to see how it worked - the Venture Farm version will end up bigger .
The second card uses the same technique of colouring the stamp - from the Elusive Images Butterfly Poppy plate - with markers. Stamped onto white card, then the colour was spread over the background wioth a water brush - I did have to add some extra colour in a couple of places, but it was surprising how far the colour will spread. The scrolls stamped onto the corners of the base card are embossed in mint sparkle EP, although they don't show up very well in the scan, and the scroll is from the EI Butterfly daisy plate


  1. Hi Veronica!
    Just to let you know that I am still collecting cards. So yours will be more than welcome when it arrives!
    Also, Rainbow Lady's Eyes challenge does not close until Wednesday night/Thursday morning so you've still got plenty of time to post these wonderful cat's eyes!

  2. Two lovely cards Veronica. I like the images stamped with markers and the second one looks so effective as a watercolour.

    I'll admit, I am a more of a dog person really but I do like cats and this is such a lovely image.

    BTW the scroll corners are very subtle but still gorgeous when I clicked to enlarge.
