Here is the card that I created with Newton’s Nook “Newton’s Support” stamps set.
I started by randomly stamping the bow with two different Lawn Fawn gray tones to create the background. Then I blended Picked Raspberry Distress Ink onto the paper, but just around the edges, not the entire background.
I love heat embossed sentiments, so I picked the “Life is tough but so are you!” sentiment and heat embossed it on vellum with silver embossing powder. I thought that might fit to the gray bows 😉
Then I stamped the cat with Memento ink and colored it using Copic markers. I added a little sparkle to the bow and adhered it to the strip of vellum.
Before I adhered it to the background, I die cut it using the mini rope die. Then I wrapped the vellum piece around it and adhered it to the card base. Finally, I added some Kat Scrappiness sequins all over the card.
