Enjoy Your Day – Birthday Card Series

Enjoy Your Day 2015 (1)

Hello everyone!!!

I’ve just popped up at my blog to share what I created after a few week pause. I’ve been on vacation and on my return found 35º C (95º F) in the city. We are literally melting!!!  I wish I could turn back on the sea shore… so my today’s birthday card is all about summer and it’s heavily inspired by my journey and by my new furry friend I met at the the hotel where we were staying.

I’ve never thought that cats love staying in the pool, but I was wrong. Besides this picture finally brought me the inspiration on how to use funny kitty images from Newton’s Nook Design Summer Vacation stamp set.

I did a little bit of watercoloring using no-line technique and partial die-cutting. I’m still experimenting with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and  Strathmore watercolor paper so I will let you my opinion later. Here’s the up-close look on the watercoloring… and, of course, the little mischief is colored like my cat Tommy.
