Stretching my Stamps

For this card, I had to edit the stamp a little bit. I wanted to use my Newton's Nook 'Naughty Newton' stamp to show a kitty holding up some balloons. This stamped image would have had the scratch marks showing a naughty kitty ripping the furniture. On my card I wanted him to be a good kitty, so once I stamped my image and die cut it with the corresponding die, I cut off the top where the extra bit of the image would be (that I didn't want). 

Now, I can glue the balloon string underneath his paws to look just like he was holding them up, or he was flying away into the sky! 

The background stencil is from My Favorite Things, and I used distress oxide inks in a few different colours to go with the balloons. 

This card is being entered into the Inky Paws Challenge.

  1. Love how you "re-purposed" this image, especially from naughty to nice! :) The rainbow colors and pawprints in the background really make it bright and festive! So glad you shared this gem with us at Inky Paws!
