Orange Tabby

Hi All!

It's pretty yucky here today, rainy and humid. Looks like another day indoors. Hope you are having a good day. I know I'm looking forward to the weekend myself and hoping for some less humid weather too.

I have a card to share today that I made with my new Sugar Nellie Braveheart stamp! He's simply the sweetest little kitty! I've also tried a new setting on my camera to see if I can increase the quality of the image, we'll see how that works out! LOL!


I've colored him with Copics in various orange tones. I was going for an orange tabby effect! I also highlighted the image with a glitter and gel pen. The sketch is from Papertake Weekly and the I chose the color combo to fit with the challenge of Y is for Yellow at ABC Challenge. It's been hard to combine challenges this week as there are a bunch of sketches! I hope to squeeze a few more in on a card for tomorrow.

Before I go, I do have some fun and exciting news to share! I was chosen as one of the new design team members for a new company called Paper Maniac! I'm thrilled and honored to be working with this team and can't wait to get started. The Paper Maniac store will be opening in September, stay tuned!



Thanks for coming by today, have a great day! Happy Stamping! :)
