Obviously I cannot resist new stamps even when I have swaps to make for convention! I took a break and made this sweet card with one of the new hostess sets: Window Dressing. It has a bunch of different images that you can place in the window... including a cat, although it is not quite as *fluffy* as my cats. :)
Quick notes: Image was stamped in Black StazOn on watercolor paper and colored with re-inkers and an AquaPainter. The little birdie was stamped on Pink Pirouette cardstock and colored with Pretty in Pink reinker.
I punched the birdie out with a 1 1/4" circle punch and added paper piercing around the outer edge. I then dabbed a touch of Crystal Effects to each piercing and the bird. I like the little extra dimension that the CE adds. :)
