Kitty and the Ornament by Fred She Said for Little Patch of Crafty Friends #171 on the 5th of December, 2021


Hi All!
Welcome to my post about my card for challenge #171, the 5th of December challenge for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.

Anyway, here is my card:

Our sponsor for this challenge is Fred She Said:

Prize - $10 Gift Certificate

I chose Kitty & the Ornament, which I have digitally printed on to X-Press It Blending Card. I have used my paper cutter to cut around my image, followed by colouring with the following Copics:
  • kitty - W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, R20
  • red ribbon - R22, R24, R46, R59
  • ornament - B12, B14, B16, B18, gold glitter pen
  • background - BG0000, BG000, B00
  • grounding - BV0000, BV000, BV00
  • outline - B18
I have adhered the coloured image on to a white card from Envelope Solutions.

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her fantastic monthly classes and bonus classes.

Here are a couple close-ups of the colouring:

  3. Great card Lou. This reminds me of my daughter's cat batting the decorations off the tree (she has unbreakable ones because of said cat). Thank you for entering the Any Christmas Card Goes Challenge at 12 Months of Christmas.
