Why I love Kittens and Fishing Poles

because a feline's gotta fish! LOL Well, I really love them because Stampendous makes them adorable this summer with new images now available in stores near you or at their webstore! I'm sharing two cards today perfect for the trendy coloring style we all do for our homemade cards. Don't let that stop you if you're not of coloring mind, it's easy to use them on pattern paper for piecing or glitter and Fun Flock or... however you want!

My first card has Punkin Kitty and Autumn Words stamps. I colored with the popular Copic Markers and added some Prismacolor Pencils for some precise shading. I mean, when you mess up and want to cover it up, use colored pencils, right? lol I switched lids on my markers and picked up the darker YR for Punkin's head, so I lightened up with some colored pencils.

Fishing Kiddo is THE sweetest scene stamp for a masculine card! I'm usually hard pressed to finish off a card when it's just a character image, but this one makes it EASY to cover the whole card because it's already got a background included.

Now remember this week there are PRIZES, PRIZES, PRIZES! Comment on all the blogger's post today to win this fabby duo. The winner will be announced on the Stampendous blog tomorrow morning.
