This card was inspired by my cat. An awesome, adorable orange tabby named O’Malley. If you first looked at the picture of this card and noticed the sentiment “happiness is…” and your answer was orange tabbies; that is the right answer, of course, lol! I made this card in a monochromatic style by inking spots of yellow and orange Memento inks, then added a layer of Orange Zest StazOn Studio Glaze. The glaze covers the paper with a nice vibrant, translucent color. I find that it unifies the background nicely. Perfect for my unified looking orange cats card.
Time: 30 minutes
Ink random spots of the Dandelion then the Cantaloupe Memento inks with the Inkblusher.
Ink random spots of Tangelo then Lady Bug Memento inks with the Inkblusher.
Squeeze a line of the Orange Zest StazOn Studio Glaze. Using a plastic scraper or an old credit scrape the glaze across the paper.
After painting and inking the background, stamp the sentiment; cut to the desired size and assemble card.
