Distressed Kitty

Evening Peeps! Oh, don't worry about the distressed kitty, it's not a real one! The nearest my cat is to being distressed is from the noise of the heatgun... he's flaked out in my craftroom on HIS sofa! Talk about easy life!

Just wanted to share this little card with you... and nope it's not done with Promarkers! Yup, I've resisted THE pens and have tried my hand with Distress Inks (seeing as I had some new colours I'd never used)... it's been ages since I've used inks to colour! The stamp is a Sarah Kay from Stampavie, just so so cute! I've used Bev's lovely sketch from the Stampavie challenge. The little kitty is a hommage to my cat Réglisse... not easy to colour a black cat! I've used paper from my Basic Grey 'Sugared' pack, it fits with the distressed feel. The challenge over at Basic Grey Challenges is to use pearls on your card, so I'm entering mine.

Have a lovely evening, thanks for popping by!

I am very behind with my blog visits and I'm trawling through sites and just leaving one comment on a particular favourite from recent makes. I really like the image on this card and your colouring is lovely. I particularly love how you have done the background to the image. The papers and the overall card design really popped for me too! Very pretty! Warmest wishes, Lesley
