Seeing Stars

When Giovana issued the "shape" challenge, my mind immediately went to the Stars & Stripes set. I bravely sketched out a primitive star shape onto a plain white notecard... and well, it went into the trash shortly thereafter. My second attempt fared better, though :) I stamped the adorable patriotic kitty with versafine ink and colored with prismacolor pencils, adding just a bit of light blue around the edges. I also went over the heart with a spica glitter pen - it's very subtle, but I had to add just a bit of sparkle somewhere! I stamped the word, and also accented that with a red pc pencil, then finished off the card by stippling some mustard ink around the edges. Fun, simple, and it still fits in a standard A2 envelope!

The whole team "got in shape" today, so be sure to check out their creations: Dina, Giovana, Donelda, Donna, & Sarah (at Susan's blog)

Cute, cute, cute card Trish.

Choosing the shape from the stamp is clever, and much easier than my approach of thinking shape first, then agonizing over what to stamp on it...
