I am excited to be sharing my first post on the Art Neko Blog today. My name is Judy and I am a dog lover. I have an 8 year old rescue dog named Fiona. But — my daughter has a cat, and I am learning to love and appreciate them. We also have six neighborhood cats that take advantage of our sunny front porch and deck, and they are sweet too. And none of them are ordinary!
For my card today I chose NO ORDINARY CATS as my image for my main tag. I made a watercolor background with distress inks and then stamped my image in VersaFine Onyx Black, using a MISTI to re-stamp until I got the image as dark as I wanted. Watercolor paper has texture, and it sometimes takes several impressions to fill in that texture. This cute image also comes in a sheet with some other amazing cat images and sentiments. I layered my main tag with a die cut tag for interest, and added some fun ribbons and fibers to the tops of the tags, along with some mulberry flowers. I think my daughter will like this card!
