#184 Cute and/or Fluffy.

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hello stampers and crafters.
I love this challenge, so cute!
 Today I have a card that is also very suitable for beginners.
But first I will tell you what I used to make the card.

The stamps:

Mustard seed
Wild honey
Kitch flamingo
Black waterproof ink pad
Derwent colorsoft pencils
Black fineliner
White gellpen
Stamperia stencil
Masking tape

To start, we make a puddle on our work sheet with a little water and the distress ink.
We run the paper through that.
Make sure you get interesting spots and don't make it too dark.
Allow to dry, possibly with a heat tool.
We start by stamping the mice with waterproof ink.
Make sure there is some distance between the mice so that the cat can sit between them.
Mask the mice with masking tape.
Now stamp the cat.
Remove the masks.
Now you would think that the colors of the background run through the animals.
But that's no problem, you will see that if you color with the same colors they disappear.
We use a white gel pen to whiten the cat's eyes and put a white dot in the pupils and on the nose.
We also make the scarf and the buttons on the mice's coat white with the gel pen.
Stamp the text at the top of the card in black.
Because my hands are quite shaky, I have difficulty drawing lines. 
So I drew the border with the handy stamperia mask and a black fineliner.
I rounded the corners of the card,
and glued the card onto black cardstock.
And this was it, a fairly easy card but super fun to make.
Of course with the beautiful stamps from Lost Coast Designs and Carmens Veranda Stamps.
Do you have a nice cute or fluffy stamp?
It may even be from a different brand, then join our challenge and have a chance to win stamps.
PLEASE read the RULES first, this way you avoid disappointments.
See you on the challenge,
