One Green Girl & Her Cat

I bought this stamp when it was on sale and have not used it until now, well its a lovely simple stamp but seemed to take ages to colour, also I have not coloured animals until today, the cat is my first and trying to make it look right was hard but some more practice and I will get there.

  1. Hehe, I have lots of stamps like that, bought and never used. Hooray for you to find the perfect time to ink her up! Such a darling card. Thanks for joining us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.


  2. AJ,
    Happy to see you again. You card is super! What a great image and can not believe you have not used it until now. I have a bunch of stamps of horses as well as some other animals and coloring them intimidates me.

  4. It is delightful to have you join us again this week. I know what you mean about coloring up animals. It is a little intimidating sometimes. I remember the first cat I colored. Anyway your card is adorable. I love this stamp. I have a ton of stamps too that I need to get out and use. Thanks for joining us.

  5. Hi AJ this is a really cute card and sweet image. I know what you mean about colouring animals. If this helps I always use my lightest colour first then keep added my darker colours to give the effect of shadowing. Just a little bit of useless info. Don't forget to add our sketch to your posting so that you to be considered to win the grand prize. Pretty colours and sweet embellishments. Great card and thanks so much for sharing it with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.

  6. Ah, everyone has those crafty purchases covered in dust somewhere :) Sales are the worst(best!) for convincing you that you NEED it! And as for colouring everything, it gets better with practice. I've never been happy with my colouring!
