Furever Friends Purrfect Birthday Card and Tag with Marion

Hello. It's Marion here with a fun way to use the Furever Friends stamp set and its coordinating dies. If you struggle with colouring animal images or maybe you are just short on time, this technique could be one for you to try.



To begin with, I cut a panel of watercolor paper and painted a gradient of colour using Distress inks (from the top down, Barn Door, Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon, a mixture of Ripe Persimmon/Mustard Seed and Mustard Seed). As I wanted the watercolour panel to be quite vibrant, I added several layers of each colour, making sure to heat set the panel between each layer.

I then stamped and die cut the cat from the Furever Friends stamp set from the same watercolour paper and then adhered it to the card without adding any colour. I love the contrast of the white cat against the vibrant background.  To finish off both the card and tag, I white heat embossed a sentiment onto black card stock.
