Hi everyone, today I am sharing a Thank you card for our new Vet who has been helping our cat Ruby recover from an illness. I didn't really have alot of suitable cat images but thought this Penny Black one with a balloon would suffice. Let's face it, who doesn't love a balloon no matter what age or gender?!
I stamped the image onto Ranger watercolour cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black ink and coloured it using Lyra watercolour pencils and a #2 round paintbrush. I went over any of the black lines using a Zig Millenium .03 black pen to darken the lines up again.
I added Glossy Accents to the balloon to add some shine. The sentiment is by Lili of the Valley which is unmounted rubber that I bought before they went digital. I diecut some stars from the blue part of the designer paper using my Big Shot and a Memory Box die set - Hearts and Stars - and glued them on using Tombow Mono Aqua glue. The designer paper is old and retired - Kaisercraft Pet's Paradise - and I think was released in 2012. The dotted cardstock was made using a very old embossing folder - and the first one I ever bought - Cuttlebug Swiss Dots. I still get such a kick out of embossing cardstock and think that it such a cool thing to be able to do yourself. All the layers were trimmed to either 1/16" or 1/8" using my Perfect Layers Tools.
The ribbon is from my stash. I added Fray Stop to the cut ends to stop them from fraying. Once I had finished the card front, I glued it to a kraft card base using Tombow Mono Multi glue. I hope the Vet likes his card.
