My third entry to the recent Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge to make a b00b-related card won me a guest gig. Whoot!
This fortnight's challenge is to use cat images, with optional snark.
I have a vast cat image collection, so this was actually a tough choice for me. I decided to go through my older images and show one of them some love. Plus, most of my snark is in the form of wooden stamps (I've been collecting snark for a loooong time), so the cats and snark live in the same neighborhood.
Here's my card:
I thought I was being quite clever with the sentiment, since I successfully masked it and stamped it in two parts. I only forgot to remove the inky mask once. But I think it would look better without that busy background paper. I also added the strip of orange & green at the bottom to make it even busier. (In real life, the green in the paper matches the Sage Shadow layer.) I am not in love with this card.
So I made another one:
I went overboard in the other direction, and I think he's a bit boring. The cat here is stamped on a piece of Authentique paper and has a vintage-y pattern to it. I did this so I didn't have to color him. I also covered his shades with Glossy Accents. And I do believe in that sentiment.
So, two cards I don't love, but they both have cute cats and snark, so it was a good day. :)
Thanks, again, to the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers for selecting my b00b card. It's an honor to play with such snarky women.
And make sure to stop by the Snarky Stampers blog and play along!
Thanks for stopping by!
Edited to add: The Cat Lover's Blog Hop has been extended through the weekend, so I'm entering one of my cards.
Some of the stuff I used: "Get a Cat" sentiment from River City Rubber Works, "Gag" sentiment from Viva Las Vegas Stamps, mad-looking cat from Penny Black (1999), Shades Cat from Eureka Stamps, paper from Basic Grey Max & Whiskers.
Note: No, I don't shop at all these stores. My LSS back in VA had the best collection of stamps I've ever seen in one place. I would go in, stop just inside the door, pick up a basket for my goodies, and work my way around the store. I almost always found new snark. I miss them so.
