Grown With Love, thinking of you card, Just Add Ink 371


Today I am playing along with Just Add Ink, here is the challenge and the Link to see the rest of the cards.
I have my own kitty Littlebit in the wagon. He was my favorite of all the cats I have had and that has been many.   I lost him to cancer a short time ago and I have to admit I still shed tears when I think about him too much.    This little stamp looks just like him.  He didn't have a pet bird, but I liked the idea.

The two major sets here are Grown with Love, (my favorite in the new A/C!) and Sitting here, that is the one with the porch type swing.

The grass is a piece of watercolor paper, wet down and using my aqua painter, I spread Garden Green from my ink pad, I pulled up some of the grass pieces and stamped in the rest.   I pulled the dirt stamp from Sheltered Tree.

Sorry to say, the candy dots are retired. I was so sorry to see them go, I really loved them. I used 2 on the wheels and 2 on the sentiment.  You could just punch out real red circles and add those on.

My colors today are: Whisper White, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Pool party, Smoky Slate, Soft Suede, Real Red, Garden Green.

This is such a beautiful and restful scene Lynn! I love how you have included your own much loved cat. He looks so happy and comfortable sunning himself on the wagon and I hope that this may help you heal too. Thank you for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week. x

Such a cute card using two stamp sets I would never have thought to pair together - very clever! Love the techniques you used to achieve that fantastic grass. And the dirt detail under your wagon is super smart. I adore the soft treatment you have added for the sky. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week Lynn x
