Okay, so, I have this great cat stamp that I have been wanting to use. I have also been wanting to do a hot pink and black color combo for two reasons: because it's such a fun color combo and because of my years marching with the Mandarins. Thinking of a retro color combo and cats made me then think of that phrase "you are the cat's meow". So perfect and fun for my ongoing I-don't-have-a-mother's-day-stamp card making! I thought I should look up where the phrase came from. It was actually coined by Thomas Dorgan who was a cartoonist. He also created and/or made popular phrases like "dumbbell", "for crying out loud" and "drugstore cowboy". How amazing is that? This guy single handedly created a lot of American slang. Very cool.
So here is what comes out of thinking of hot pink and black cats:
I am kind of in love with this card. How adorable is that cat?!
I used three different alphabet stamps to create the sentiment. The hot pink is raspberry fizz from papertrey ink. It is such an awesome color!
I just bought these pink flowers at Michael's. I actually didn't have any pink flowers before this! What?! I shaded the cat with copics. I also colored her collar with copics too.
The oval were cut with nestabilities, and the white dots were made with a white gel pen. I used the ranger Inkssentials white pen. It is awesome!
I used Making Memories foam adhesive to pop up the oval. That stuff is thick! Woah! Look at that shadow in the picture! Definitely dramatic!
Thanks so much for visiting. I think you guys are all the cat's meow! :)
Have an amazing day,
