Any 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!! 🙂
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! 🙂
