Card/Paper: Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, Close to Cocoa Whisper White
Ink: Black, Chocolate Chip & Pumpkin Pie markers
Other: Google Eyes, Stampin' Pastels
I made this card for my Nephew's fourth birthday today. He likes cats, and their cat had kittens a few weeks ago - two ginger and one dark brown - all stripy. My five year old spotted that they are those kittens, so hoping he will too!
The card base is Bashful Blue, and I cut a couple of Old Olive strips for the grass - trimming the top edges with deckle edge scissors. The tree trunks were freehand cut from Chocolate Chip, and stuck behind the grass layer. I punched Scalloped circles from Old Olive to make the tree tops, and 1/4" Ruby Red circles for the apples. The bird is made using a 3/4" circle and little strips created using the Round Tab Punch. Legs drawn with black marker.
The cats are made using 1 3/8", 1 1/4", 1", 1/2" circles, and the Five Petal Flower punch. The edges of the pieces were shaded a little using the chalks, and stripes and facial features drawn in with markers. Google Eyes to finish.
