Hang in There


I made this card for a friend. She needed a pick me up because she had had a rotten week. The pudgy kitty hanging onto the branch seemed to say "Hang In There"... so I really wanted to use that image. I had bought the Provocraft stamp a long time ago, but never used it. I think I helped to make her Monday a little more bearable. To color the kitty in, I wanted to make him seem soft and fluffy, so I used color pencils and gamsol to get a softer look (I'm horibble at coloring and shading). I used some scrap printed paper to give it a little more color. Again... a simple card, but made with a lot of love.
