Cuppa card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Four Legged Friends".

So yes, four legged friends. I found a super adorable friend for my card, Enervy from Katzelkraft. What a cutie, don't you agree? I started by stamping him in the background and coloring him with Distress Oxides. Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso for the fur, Shaded Lilac for the eyes and Distress Ink Black Soot for the collar. I once saw in a color tutorial to use a light purple instead of a gray for shadows for the eyes. And Distress Oxided Shaded Lilac is perfect for that.


I did the background in two parts, because I wanted the bottom of the card to be darker than the top. To protect Enervy while coloring the background, I made a mask and to make sure nothing can get underneath, I ran Enervy through the Vagabond between a few layers of printer paper to press the masking tape down properly. This also prevents that the masking tape become loose during drying it with a heat tool.
For the bottom I used Distress Oxide Frayed Burlap, Speckled Egg and Distress Ink Speckled Egg and Stormy Sky. For the top I used Distress Ink Speckled Egg and Distress Oxide Antique Linen.
