We have a masculine themed challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday this week. My DT project is another of the cards from my stash that I’ve been waiting to share. This one (along with many others from that ‘stash’) was made as part as a Christmas gift, so has been waiting a while to be shared!
I started by printing the two cats, which are Jojo and Mojo from Just Inklined, onto some alcohol marker friendly paper and then coloured them in with my alcohol markers. I decided to go for a grey tabby and a brown tabby.
Once I had completed the colouring I fussy cut the images out. It took a little while, particularly around the whiskers which were quite fiddly.
I decided I would create a very simple scene and used a snippet strip of blue card to create a floor on my white card base.
I then moved on to the sentiment. First I laid the cats where I thought I might want them, then used that as a guide for positioning my stamps. I used letters from Lawn Fawn‘s Jessie’s ABCs for the first part of the sentiment, then added the rest which is from Heffy Doodle‘s Elephant of Surprise. With that done all I had to do was adhere the cats into place and the card was complete.
I’m pretty happy with this card. It’s a nice, simple scene that really leaves the focus on the quirky cat characters. I love the expressions on their faces – they seemed just perfect for an “oops” card.
