The Happy Cat!

Meet the newest cat stamp to join my rather large enormous cat stamp collection. His name is Happy Cat (Lost Coast Designs) and his name is just perfect for him. Look at that face! Can you hear him purring? I know that I can.

Happy Cat was stamped with Desert Sand Memento ink (Imagine Crafts) and colored with Copic markers. I think I finally have hit on a good color combination for a lovely ginger tabby. What do you think? ***Edited to add the colors I used: YR000, YR20, Y21, YR30, and TO.

The patterned papers, Almanac and Time Travelers (Prima), as well as Wayfarer (Bazzill) were layered according to a sketch from Retro Sketches Challenge Blog. The edges of each layer were sponged with Pumice Stone and Tea Dye Distress inks (Ranger). Patterned paper was die-cut with dies from the Fishtail Flags die set (Die-namics). A Thanks die (Memory Box) was used to die-cut plain off-white cardstock. Some clear epoxy Rain Dots were used as embellishments

Here's the sketch so you can see how I did.

Thanks for visiting today!
