Hugs & Kitties

The main inspiration for this card came from Karen’s sketch at I Love Promarkers and the Easy Crafts Projects Challenges ‘Orange’ theme.

The image is a freebie from Pink Gem Designs and has been coloured with Promarkers.The background has been inked with Angel Pink and Cateloupe Memento.I coloured and cut out an extra hairband,arm and hand and raised them up using sillicone glue.The papers by K & Co have been inked around the edges and I’ve use the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser too.I’ve also pierced them and drawn in faux stitching with an Inkssentials white gel pen.The Gemstones card has also been distressed around the edges as well as being lightly sanded.The sentiment is from the Kiki Kitties set by Pink Cat Studios. This has been cut out with an oval slider tag die,inked using the previous colours and edged with a black Promarker for added definition.The ribbon is a piece that is supposed to keep clothes on the hanger – I think this is a much better use!! The flowers have been cut using my new Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Sizzix die and the middle part of Sizzix Flower Layers #4.The gems were originally pale yellow but to fit the orange colour scheme I changed them with an Amber Promarker.
