I have been futzing all day with an idea, and I finally put it aside and made something I just KNEW I couldn't mess up. I messed it up anyway. :(
So here's the card (one that worked):
I stamped 6 of these, and ended up with 3+. I'll explain that + part in a sec. The first two I embossed and were total disasters, so they are toast - trash - gone. I was down to 4. I grabbed what I thought was Marina Mist blue, and I FAILED to notice I'd grabbed Baja Breeze instead. Imagine my joy when I went to tie the nice skinny Marina Mist taffeta ribbon around the layers and saw I had the wrong color! ACK! Fortunately for moi, when Baja Breeze retired, I bought every stinkin' piece of Baja ribbon I could find, including the Ribbon Original pack containing the yummy satin I used here. (phew!)
The fun thing about this stamp is it takes very little to make it look good. I have never colored the cats. I just color the window panes with a very light blue, add a blue layer, some ribbon, and color the cats' bows with a red glitter pen. How hard is this? Well check this out:
Look at that middle cat's ear:
Yep! I started to color THE CAT! EEEEEEK! And DRAT! Sigh. Well, I don't want to toss it, and red glitter is pretty hard to un-do, so I'm going with the "he got into the glitter" story. Yeah, he is in so much trouble.
I might make some more of these this week. If I do, I might even add one to my dying Etsy shop.
Thanks for stopping by!
