SMC Color Challenge

Challenge is to use Red, Black and Silver.



I chose to use SMC's Cat with Heart and I colored her to look like my tortoiseshell kitty using my alcohol markers. I love how well my coloring turned outso much that I'm never sending this card out - I'll be keeping it forever. Anyway, back to my card...I cut it out, used a corner rounder then inked the edges with my red catseye ink pad. I used regular kitchen foil for my silver and embossed it with the Bubbles Cuttlebug folder. The ribbon is one that I found in my oldest son's room so I don't know where it came from (nor why he had a ribbon in there). I painted the bottom of the Acrylic Discs with a silver marker (two of them have air bubbles in them so they look like muppet eyeballs - LOL) then glued them with crystal clear accent essentials.

I'm entering this into a few challenges (you know me, I like to see how many challenges I can combine but it may be difficult once everyone stops asking for valentine theme cards):
DoodlePalace: Show-Me Texture
Fab N Funky: Embossing
Creative Belli: Ribbon
Charisma Cardz: Love
Dare U 2 Digistamp: Hearts/Valentine
Raise the Bar Challenge: Hearts
