Hello friends! Hope all is well in your part of the world. Our sunny weather has departed and the rain has returned. Oh well... that is western Washington in the spring time! Have a little card I made this morning for the new Less is More challenge. Chrissie and Jen want us to use either a dog or a cat on our card this week and I will just say upfront that I almost gave up on this one. I do not have a lot of dogs or cats in my stamp collection and I tried to make something with several of them, but could come up with anything. Basically it came down to this: all the images needed to be colored and I just wasn't in the mood to spend the morning coloring an image. So finally I decided to use my PTI On My Couch and On My Couch Additions because there is a little cat in the On My Couch Additions.
On Tuesday the hubster and I decided to go furniture shopping and ended up purchasing a sectional, coffee table and tv stand for our family room. The sectional is going to be a beautiful pale shade of green and will come with two accent pillows that have green, teal, yellow and orange in them. You are probably wondering why I'm telling you all this (or maybe you aren't, lol). The reason I am is because my card is based on our new sectional and the accent pillows. I first stamped the rug using SU!'s Taken with Teal. I then stamped the couch outline image from On My Couch using black ink and then stamped the solid couch image using SU!'s Pear Pizzazz. The little cat was stamped using Memento's Rich Cocoa. The pillow was stamped in Memento Tangelo, trimmed it out and adhered it to the couch. Since cats spend a lot of time relaxing I thought the sentiment was most appropriate. The entire piece was then mounted on a yellow card base and I was done. I do realize that the cat isn't exactly the focus of the card, but I hope it passes muster with Chrissie and Jen.
Thanks for stopping by...
