No Ordinary Cats

As many of you know, I am a dog lover. I have an 11 year old rescue dog named Fiona. But — my daughter has a cat, and I am learning to love and appreciate them. We also have MANY neighborhood cats that take advantage of our sunny front porch and deck, and they are sweet too. And none of them are ordinary!

For my card today I chose No Ordinary Cats from Art Neko as my image for my main tag. I made a watercolor background with distress inks and then stamped my image in VersaFine Onyx Black, using a MISTI to re-stamp until I got the image as dark as I wanted. Watercolor paper has texture, and it sometimes takes several impressions to fill in that texture.
I layered my main tag with a die cut tag (Reverse Confetti) for interest, and added some fun ribbons and Baby Pink Gypsophila flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon to the tops of the tags, along with some fibers from my stash. Here are the ribbons I used: 
I think my daughter will like this card!

Come play along with the Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge this month!
