Growing in Unity Day 2: Really...


When I saw Really...Kitty? release this January, I had to have it! I love animals and this kitty has an expression and pose that most cat owners will recognize. The sentiment matches the cattitude perfectly!


I embossed the kitty and used my distress inks to watercolor select areas. I used a bright paper pad to give the cards some excitement, used a pawprint border punch to add a bit of detail, and then I die cut the frame for my sentiment.


I saw the feather dies I haven't used yet (am I the only one who tends to shop the clearance shelves and ends up with a bunch of stuff that hasn't found a purpose yet?) and figured it would be a cute touch to reinforce the sentiment. No birds were harmed in the making of this card!

Lastly I used distress inks to add color to the sentiment and feathers. I like the way these came out--silly and cheerful. I can't wait to experiment with coloring kitty in the future, but the white really pops on this card.

That's it for my second day! I hope you enjoyed the kitties and don't forget to comment for a chance to win a Unity grab bag at the end of the week! You should also check out the veteran Growing in Unity gal posting alongside me this week, Cynthia!

So adorable! Love the cards you made. I agree with the others... the bright cheerful colours and paw print edging really suit these cards. I love the little tease with the feathers too! :) This stamp is on my wishlist... I have a daughter who loves cats and this is the nicest cat stamp I have seen. Thanks for showcasing it!

This is a really pretty kitty! I'm a birdie lover so I'm so thankful no birdies were hurt in the making of your sweet cards. :-)
