Oh Frap! Birthday

Hello there.  A quick birthday card to share to help celebrate CAS Watercolour 2nd birthday.   Congratulations, Loll, Bonnie and the design team!


This Oh Frap! die sentiment makes me smile every time and I love pairing this kitty with it.  Started by stamping the kitty with Copic friendly black ink on X-press It cardstock, coloured in with Copics and die cut out with the matching die.  


Oh Frap was die cut from watercolour paper and brown cardstock.  Zigs and a watercolour brush were used to colour the watercolour paper piece.  Offset it with the brown one for a shadow effect.


On an A2 size watercolour panel, smooshed Bunled Sage distress ink for the background.  White heat embossed the sentiment on a brown cardstock strip.  Mounted the panel on a white card base to finish.

And that's it for me!  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful week.
