The assigment for January's Card Exchange was to come up with a character card. First off, I need to say that I am not a cat person. I have owned cats in the past and loved them, but I would still say that I am not a cat lover. I was attracted to this cat stamp many years ago (1999 - it is actually dated) and thought he is so stinkin' cute that I just had to have him. It is by Penny Black. It was well worth the money because I have used this stamp many times over. I have always wanted to color the hearts on his bloomers green and use the saying below. I finally did it and have to say I love the look! Green is my favorite color, so I am happy about the end results.
I colored him by using water color pencils. I love the effect of shading they give. Stitched around the edge, the paper used was by Reminisce, I believe. This turned out to definitely be a card for St. Patrick's Day or any of your Irish friends.
