I created this card for a card drive Ellen Hutson is having for residents in a nursing & rehab facility in their area. I chose Newton's Nook's "Newton's Birdhouse" image. I stamped it onto a panel of Strathmore Vellum Bristol paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Since this was a new stamp, I had to stamp it about 3 times to get a good black outline. I colored it with my Prismacolor colored pencils, using Gamsol on a blending stump to blend just the kitty's fur, so it would look nice & soft. I also added grass with 2 green pencils, to ground the image. When I'd finished coloring, I put the panel back into my MISTI (I hadn't removed the stamp), and stamped again with Tuxedo Black, just to reestablish the outlines. I must admit, I was a bit nervous, as I have ruined images doing this before, but thankfully, everything came out fine this time!
I stamped my greeting, from the "So Much to Say #1" set, with Blue Jay ink onto a strip of Icy Mint cardstock. I die cut 3 hearts from a scrap of patterned paper I had in my stash, using the 3 smallest of the "Nested Hearts Infinity" dies. I matted everything with a mint-green cardstock, and adhered it to my white card base.
