Congratulations from the Cat Lady!

Welcome OCS Fans!

Hi Everyone! Sharing a card that I made for a colleague that left to pursue his career at another company. I thought this image was perfect for congratulating him from me, because at work they know how much I love cats and I’m older than most of my teammates! LOL!

Congratulations and Best Wishes

Hi There,

Sharing a card that I made for a lady at my workplace. She is going to be starting a new job and I thought it would be nice to wish her well. She was a super nice young woman and she will be missed. I wish her the best of luck!

For the front of the card, I created my own background using various Tim Holtz Ranger inks. I added a little bit of water and created a splatter background onto watercolour paper and then heat set it.

The image was from a former Kit and Clowder August 2016 Pencils monthly class using La La Land Crafts – Marci with Camera.

On the inside I created a little scene using stamps and embossing folder called Safari Friends which came free with Papercraft Essentials #145. Used Memento – Tuxedo Black and MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool to stamp the images. Coloured in with a mixture of Copic and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

Die cuts from: PaperCrafter Today which also came free with their magazine.

Hope you like it!
