Pink Cat Studio ~ Jan 7th Release!

Welcome to the first PCS release of 2010! It's finally here and I'm so excited to show you three more images from this week's release. Be sure to visit the other DT blogs to see the other two images in cards and other projects. I fell in love the moment I laid eyes on this image. What girl doesn't love a ballerina? Lily's flowing hair and those little flowers are to die for! This image doesn't even require much to look good. ;) I just added a little whimsical fence, a sentiment and I was done! P.S. I used the digital version of this image with flower and sentiment. If you choose the rubber version, you can leave out the flowers or add even more flowers and create a field of flowers for Lily to dance in! I think I'll be a proud owner of the rubber set myself because I see great versatility in those little flowers. ;)

I won't go into too much detail about this card because it's the same image shown to you in yesterday's sneak peeks, only this one uses one of the other sentiments contained in the rubber set. I used very different colours in this card and anchored the nestie with ribbon in a fashion normally reserved for tags and ornaments.

It was so much fun colouring all these hearts! You may look at this image and be a little scared but have no fear. Once you sit down, pick your colours and start randomly colouring in those little hearts, you'll be done before you know it and be so pleased with the result. If you don't want to colour them individually you could just do an overall colour wash and then add highlighting or remove colour from random sections! I coloured Lily and Billy as me and hubby because I might give him this card on Valentine's Day. I used the wood-like paper to pretend we were lying in a pile of hearts on the floor making heart angels. Then I added the hemp cord for a little detail. Now that I think of it, it would be funny if I added a mini version of Billy in the middle to represent our son. LOL

So what'd you think of this week's releases? Tempting, aren't they? All five images are available digitally and three are also available in rubber. If you can't resist then hurry on over to the Pink Cat Studio store for instant gratification! Don't forget that we'll have another release for you next Thursday that's sure to please again. I can't wait! :D
