Mo Manning's Sinatra

How cute is this cat? This is another free digi stamp from Mo Manning. I just love this cat. I used to have a cat named Spooky, he would sit in my lap while I knitted and his head would follow the yarn. He would flex his feet and you could just see the gears turning. Eventually instinct would win out and he would pounce on the yarn, I would laugh and tell him no so he would let go. Then the process would start all over again. He was a great kitty.

Anyway, on to the card. I printed my image onto Cryogen white paper and colored with my Copics. I followed Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #35 for the card layout. My airbrush spit as I was adding the background color but I kind of like the look. I also airbrushed the scalloped border, the lace and the flower to match. Everything matches much better than what the photo shows. Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.

I just found out that my Ben "Sprinkling Love" won 2nd place in the Copic Buzz Mo Manning challenge. I won $10 to spend on her fabulous images. How exciting. Thanks go out to Barbara from Copic Buzz and Mo Manning for her sponsorship.

Sandy-where on Mo Manning's site are the free digis? I looked and looked. I did send the link to my daughter so we can decide which to buy as I love the ones of her parents. So many of the digis are from Europe now and I have such a horrible credit card for fees outside US. So stick to US-Buy American!

Really cute image and card, Sandy. I just downloaded and may give digi stamps a try with this one.

Funny, I had my airbrush spit the other day too, and I just left it that way. It was on a card for my niece's 16th birthday - I doubt she'll even notice it... ;-)
