New Cat Card

This is the first card I have made in the New Year!  I know someone who got a new cat recently so their other cat will have a companion.  I thought I would send a welcoming card.  My stamping friend, Cat, sent me some images and I used one here for that purpose.  Check out here blog here.

I colored the image with alcohol markers. I regret using pink for the book. I originally was going to add a pink banner with a sentiment, but changed my mind and added some text with a pencil directly to the book. So the colors aren’t as balanced as I would like.

I am not sure if that text will be appreciated or not!  I do think the cats look similar to the ones in real life, though!  

Supplies:  Newton’s Nook A Cozy Day In stamp, Memento Black ink, Spectrum Noir and Copic Markers, Avery Elle Wonky Stitched Rectangles dies, Crate Paper DIY Shoppe 6x6 paper pad, vellum scrap from my stash

I would love to play in these challenges:
Pixie’s Snippets Playground Challenge - vellum is a snippet
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes

Thanks for your visit today!

Those kitties are snuggled up and enjoying a little snooze, how cute! Congrats on your first card of 2018!

What a darling card. I'm just uploading my first card for 2018 too. Hoping to do some challenges this weekend as long as my fiance lets me stay in my stamp room.

Your colouring is really awesome too.

I love it and I don't mind the pink book. You needed a lighter color in order to see the title on it. And, those are darling kitties! It is such a cute design.

So cute, they will appreciate that the cats look like theirs and like you gave the book a title, neat touch with the vellum piece!

Heidi, what a nice gesture to make a lovely card to welcome your friend's new kitty! Love the cat image, and the book and its title are great!

Heidi, you did a great job with this image...I always find it difficult to use. But I am going to give it another shot for sure. I am so glad you are able to play with the images sent. Just let me know if you want any others. Crafty Hugs.
