Not a Pretty Site

Here is my second card to show you today. I used Mojo86 and this week's SCS color challenge of So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, and Bashful Blue as inspiration. The coffee cups and the kitty are popped-up. I again used water coloring on this card but used an aqua painter instead. This card actually got made before the Rain card and my bright idea of using a paint brush. I have been wanting to make this kitty and those coffee cups(received this Amuse stamp from Miss Kadie a loooong time ago) into a card for a while and the stars aligned for me tonight. Of course it is 1:45 am right now so I will probably need those two cups of coffee and pretty much look like that too. LOL! Enjoy and have a great weekend.

Ink: Staz-on, Pumpkin pie, Bashful blue, So Saffron
Stamps: The Doodle Factory, Amuse
Paper: PTI White, Canson, K&Company DP

Love the colours and the layout and can understand the sentiment lol. I like this colouring too it looks kind of bolder than the paint brushed effect which works for an image like this.

Your painting on this is Fantastic, too! I know we all are harder on ourselves, sometimes, but I don't see why you would be even the tiniest bit unhappy with your painting on this! Adorable images, too! I love his expression - makes me laugh! :-) Traci
