It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash. this week's theme is Critters, and we'd like to see a critter on your project.
Here's my card, then I'll explain:
This is not the card I'd intended to make. Nope. I have a half of a huge drawer full of cute critter stamps, but my mind was set on using an old stamp I got to support a fundraiser, and it needed to see some love. While searching through my other huge drawer of wood-mounted stamps, I found the cat stamp I wanted to use, but this one was right next to it. My brain exploded and I changed up my card idea to use this stamp instead.
Then I realized it had lots of parts to it that would need to be colored, so I stamped it in the wrong ink for water coloring, then pondered my sorry existence. I opted to take the most difficult road and paper pieced the thing. I even had to re-stamp the cat so it wasn't green. I need a keeper.
And in case you're wondering, I did practice with that sentiment stamp to get it straight, and I still managed to stamp it crooked on the card. I haven't lost my touch.*
So, I think you should go dig out some critter stamps and play along with us at SOS this week. You know you want to!
Thanks for stopping by!
* Actually, now that I look at it, the bottom line of the sentiment is straight, so THE STAMP IS MADE CROOKED. It's not me at all!!!!!!
Stuff I used: Cat On Sofa from Viva Las Vegas Stamps, Get A Cat from River City Rubber Works, and the following:
