More National Scrapbook Day Projects & Viva La Verve Challenge

Note: Please read this post for information on an important change regarding my blog.

This next card I made while Tess was working on a couple of Mother’s Day cards at our National Scrapbook Day crop. She had just finished one Mother’s Day card and given it to another woman at the crop when some guy staying at the hotel we were in poked his head in to find out what we were doing. One thing lead to another and Tess ended up selling him the card she made, plus another one that he said he’d come back for. Plus, she had to redo the one for the woman she had given the card to in the first place!

So, while she was working on that, I made this card.

This card was made from an April Viva La Verve Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. The sketch caught my eye on a blog I visited because of the unique layering of the triangular pieces. I really wanted to try the technique out. And then I got this cute cat stamp from Hambo stamps and an idea began to form in my mind.

I’m really happy with the way this card came out. I love the bright colors and I also love the coloring on the cat. Can you see how I managed to shade the water in the image up to the point where the “water” on the card is?

What a fun card!
