Scruffy Little Cat stampAny of you that know me, know I really don’t do pink and girly.  I resist preferring the comfort of my steampunk grungy artsy stuff!  But… in the interest of fairness I do stock such girly items and therefore it seems only fair to have a play and make some suggestions for card ideas with them too!

So.. a new line we have in stock is the Crafter’s Companion Scruffy Little Cat ladies.  This particular stamp is called Perry and she was my favourite of all the designs.  I thought she would be nice for a teen’s birthday, or even a prom card.

I started by stamping in black Memento ink so I could colour with Promarkers.  I kept the colour scheme very feminine and soft with lots of shading.  It’s been a while since I have done a stamp that needed such delicate shading and I really enjoyed colouring her in.  I plan to do a few more in different colour schemes – maybe even grunge her up a bit ! – cannot help myself!! 🙂Scruffy Little Cat stamp

I kept her backing quite simple – just cutting 3 scalloped ovals (Spellbinders Nestabilities Dies) out of fuschia pink card and then I made two of them dotty with a dot embossing folder (From Crafts-Too).  I added some outlining to highlight the scallop edge and arranged the pieces onto my card.  The flower I think just adds that finishing touch

See I can do pink and girly when I try! 🙂
