Birthday Balloon Floating Cat Card
I made this for Newton's Nook Color Challenge #29. I used a Darice embossing folder and inked it up with two colors, then spritzed with water. For the first attemp I did not spritz and the ink was too streaky and unnatural looking. I like how the spritz version turned out much better.
I colored Newton a grey tabby color with a little white. I gave him a bit of mottled soft coloring around his face because that is how my cat's coloring is. I have a Main Coone and his hair is medium length and downy soft so his coloring around his face is softer looking than a short haired cat. I popped up the cat in the blue sky center and then got out all of my star embellishments. I mixed rhinestone and sequin stars in 3 different sizes. I decided the card still needed more and I brought out my trusty 3d Fabric Paint. I coverd the raised sky border and the swirls.
I trimmed the edges just a little and applied it to a base with dimensionals. When I give this to someone they are going to know immediately that the floating cat is my cat, however, he is a Maine Coon and as much as we might think he can float on a balloon, I think he would be more of an anchor! Here are the challenges I am entering this card in:
