Giggle Birthday

Welcome back!  Yup, two posts today.  I wanted to share this card I whipped together Thursday night to send to my dear sister-in-law who lives out of state after realizing that if I waited until the weekend to make it, it would be late for her birthday.  It's a "momentous" birthday for her and my husband wanted to send her something funny.  I didn't have the Giggle Greetings stamp set but my friend and Upline came to my rescue and let me borrow hers.

After stamping watercolor paper with Stazon, the cat was colored with a blender pen using So Saffron and Crushed Curry. Smoky Slate was used to ground the image and Soft Sky was applied with an Aquapainter for the background.  I used a heat tool to dry it to avoid warping from air drying.

The banner was cut from Irresistibly Yours dsp and brayered with Bermuda Bay ink, then the entire panel was wrapped in Crushed Curry Baker's Twine before mounting on the card base.

As always, your visit and comments are so appreciated!  Take care!
