Huffy cat

I'm Guest Designer over at the Retro Rubber Challenge today :)
It's quite a new challenge blog to me, but a great idea to get you rooting through those older stamps! (at least a year old)
Here's this week's sketch ....

For mine, I've used a couple of older Eat Cake Graphics stamps.  I think this huffy cat was the 2nd ECG stamp I bought many many moons ago, I'm delighted that I now have a stack of their stamps :)

Love it! Such a fun image, and it goes so well with the sentiment.
I've been stamping three years now... Do you think my earlier stamps can now be classed as "old"? lol. x

Hello Lynee: Thank you for being our guest designer this week, this card is just absolutely adorable!! The cat's attitude, "gently" retiring, speaks volumes about the temperament of this sweet pets.
Love the way you used the sketch to showcase this kitty image, beautifully colored, love every detail.
Thank you again for joining us this week as Guest Designer, we hope to see you again in the gallery soon.
Hugs,
Maria Rodriguez.

Lynne - love this card! What is the outline stamp that you use for the border? It looks familiar - I know it is possilbe to draw lines and I have in the past, but time is of the essence!

Lynne in NI said...

H Caroline, my border is hand drawn - just draw a line round the edge, when you feel your line starting to wobble, stop, leave a little space and carry on. Then when you're done, join the lines with a tiny triangle. Easy peasy :)
