Cozy Cat Nap

Hi everyone! Hope you're enjoying your weekend.

Today's Featured Stamper on SCS is Kendra. I chose THESE CARDS of hers to CASE. Love the layout with the fun ribbon in the corner.

I added some layers, changed the colors by using my new Fancy Pants Happy Holidays DP (fun stuff!), and used my Artful Stamper Cat Nap stamp (stamps beautifully every time..always a clean image). The image was stamped in Versafine Black Onyx and then watercolored with ink pads/reinkers and a damp watercolor brush. I painted the bell with Golden Opal Twinkling H20's and added some Frosted Lace Stickles around the edges of the santa hat. I added some shading to the bottom of the image with Basic Black ink. You can click on either picture to see a larger view.

The Cat Nap stamp, Fancy Pants DP, Frosted Lace Stickles, gold metallic string and the olive May Arts ribbon can all be found at Stamper's Dream!
