I have a sweet project to share with you today. I love cats and dogs and have had both as pets over the years. I have a house full of cats right now and it is like having a cat rodeo most of the time.The Stampavie Kitty On The Swing by Gillian Roberts is such a cute image with the little girl and her kitten but I couldn’t resist adding a couple additional kittens to my scene.
I stamped the image on watercolor for the base of the scene and again on scrap watercolor paper. I colored all the images using a brush and reinkers with mixed with water. I hand painted a tree trunk on a second piece of watercolor paper and stamped in leaves using the mini fern stamp from my Kittie Kits Outdoor Master. I carried the leaves image out of the frame and onto the base of the card. I sponged in blue sky on both the frame layer and base layer of the cards. I used a hand cut cloud template to form the clouds. I cut out the images and popped them up in the scene. I placed the additional kittens around the scene to be peeking out from behind the tree and girl. I filled in the grassy area with grass sprigs and then added sprigs of punched foliage and tiny punched flowers. I added a large flower to the little girl’s hair to match her pink dress. I love how the scene is carried from the layer layer on to the main base layer of the card.
