Holiday Card Series 2014 # 13 – Naughty or Nice?

NND naughty or ...(1)

Hi, guys!

here’s another holiday kitty card. How could I resist to the Newton’s Curious Christmas stamp set and its cute cat images?

This card is not a usual size. It’s 5½ by 5½ inches square card. And it’s rather thick. So it’s better not to send it through the mail, but give it personally to someone.

Before stamping I marked the square areas using my T-square rule on the watercolor paper and masked them with some Post-it notes so that the stamp images remain inside the squares. There is no much to say about coloring I made with distress markers. The only thing I want to share with you is that you might keep in mind that the distress markers reactivate every time you use water. So when I came to put the glitter accents with my Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen some colors became bleeding. It’s not a huge deal and I left it like it is. After all it’s a handmade card and nobody expects it to be “perfect”. However the next time for blending the small areas I’ll use directly Wink of Stella since you need a very small amount of it.

Glossy Accents added finishing touches to the card.

This is my another entry to NND Inky Paws Challenge #16 – Christmas Theme. Go ahead to their blog and check out what other cardmakers created with their stamps.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
