WWC260 - Karen's Challenge: All About Occasions

I have some awesome Art Impressions stamps created by Bonnie Krebs which are perfect for a get well card.  Even more perfect, this stamp set has the most adorable cat images.  Why is that perfect, you ask.  Well, this card is for my darling daughter who is having more problems with a  chronic ear infection.  I couldn't resist .

I began with a base of  Heavy Whisper White  and then added a matte of Blushing Bride.  Then I took a piece of  Smoky Slate and embossed it with a Darice embossing folder.  Love, love, love those paw prints, don't you?   I think it's really striking that some prints are embossed and some are debossed. Such a great effect!

I had such fun watercolouring the image.  I used my Derwent watercolour pencils and then went over the colours with my Aquapainter to blend them.  Once it was dry, I used my stitched oval die to cut it out and then used Dimensionals to attach it to the card.

I hope you enjoy my card as much as I enjoyed creating it.  Have fun with our challenge!
