Kids Kard Challenge

I have to say being a Karen and trying to be a KReative person because of my name I like a challenge that changes words to start with the LETTER K!

 So I was very excited to see the challenges at The Paper Players and Addicted to CAS are all about Kids and CAS. Congratulation to The Paper Players on their 600th Challenge too!

The hardest thing is choosing what image to use. I picked up my first Colorado Craft Company stamp and matching die whilst up in Auckland for the weekend. I have been meaning to buy a stamp from CCC for ages as their stamps are just adorable, but they normally are centered around mice. So I saw this wee cutie and  it had a cat so I was sold. 

I really enjoyed doing the  "calico-coloured" cat recently so  thought I would do something similar but it ended up being a tabby cat. I regret deciding I wanted to do no-line colouring so ended up going over the image with my Polychromo Burnt Sienna pencil to give it a bit of definition.

Now as this card is for kids it definitely had to have sparkle and jewels and I tried to cover up one of my raindrops I decided I didn't want but Hero Arts glitter paste is too sticky so next time leave alone or mask off my stencil!! The raindrops are created by mixing my HA glitter paste and some ink I smooshed from my Tumbled Glass distress oxide pad,  Hopefully the rest is obvious.

And showing off my Wink of Stella on the watering can.
