MHK Designs August Release Day 4 - Pet Puns

Who doesn't LOVE their pets!!!  MHK Designs new release  Pet Puns is irresistible!!!

I couldn't wait to use this set to make a card for my dear friend that loves cats.  I made this adorable Pop-Up Easel card for her.

I printed the image in dark gray and softly colored it with colored pencils....gray for the kitten, pink for the collar, and green for the eyes.  I used silver glitter gel pen to color the bells on the collar, but it doesn't show up well in the pictures.  I also light chalked with blue around the kitten to give it some dimension.   I used my stitched oval dies to cut out the black oval layer, and around the kitten and a small oval for the sentiment.  I punched a tiny butterfly from the pink paper and inked the edges with "Black Soot" Distress ink so it would match the butterflies on the paper and placed it above the kitten's head so it looks like that is what she is looking at.  On the bottom I added a doily and ribbon, then attached a bow to hold the easel open.  I love Love LOVE how this turned out and almost hate giving it away...but I know my friend will love it.
