Je T'aime - Newton's Nook Inky Paws Challenge Entry

Bonjour everyone ! I will never forget my first trip to Paris - City of Love 💓. This place is indeed beautiful and romantic. The iconic Eiffel Tower is very majestic and classy. Today, I've decided to capture these awesome memories in a card and combining inspiration from MarkerPOP color challenge #113 and Newton's Nook Inky Paws Sketch Challenge #40. Here is my take.





For this card, I've used the classy and adorable stamp set from Newton's Nook - Dreams of Paris. Firstly, I stamped the cute kitties onto Neenah Solar White Card stock 80lbs using MFT Hybrid Hot Fudge ink as I will be Copic coloring them (inks details at the end of this blog). Then I used YNS Stitched Square dies (second and third largest) to die cut my focal panel using Neenah Solar White 110lbs card stock. At the same time, I picked some soft pink, light grey card stocks and coordinating pattern papers for my card layers. 


I gold heat embossed the sentiments onto the fish tail strips and gold embossed the Eiffel Tower onto the square focal panel. To add more interest to the plain white card base, I used WE R Memory Keepers Geometric Next Level embossing folder to create some texture look.

For the inner square panel, I used MFT Premium Dye inks in Tickled Pink, Periwinkle and Sno Cone to blend the background.

To assemble my card, I glued the pattern paper and fish tails onto the embossed card base. I cut a piece of golden thread, placed it under the square panel and glued it down. I then added the square frame using foam tape and wrap the gold thread around the square panels twice and secure it with a simple bow.


For the images, I glued the female kitty, followed by the male kitty using foam tape for a little added dimension. Then, added a moustache and two hearts for some detail. For finishing touches, I've added glossy accents onto the moustache and hearts and brushed on some shine to the Eiffel tower and kitties' outfits using clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. And, my card is complete !

Face and body - W1, W3, W5

Hugs,
Amy
