Kitty Lane Posting Number 3

Well, I have been a bit delayed in getting some more of the Kitty Lane Stamps posted - I took a few days off and had a reading fest - but am now back on track! I used my Kindle and re-read some old favorites - probably should have been painting!

Today I have two stamps to show you, both coloured with Copics -  this one has a sailing kangaroo, which is very appropriate for my hubby and I as we met during the America's Cup when Australia won for the first time; and NZ nearly won it again just recently, but the American boat was crewed by mostly Australians!


This is Kitty's very cute image - Kangaroo Sailing. Love his hat!


The sentiment I chose is from LOTV (Set 64) and is stamped in Memento Paris Dusk and I used this to smudge around the piece of DP (nope, no idea where this came from - it is a piece of scrap!)


The charm is glued on and I chopped off the small circle on the top of the lighthouse. I did the same with the small wheel charm



I tried to let the image dominate the card. It is all put onto a piece of SU Night of Navy card, folded. 

The second card is a Retirement one and the image I used is called Island Holiday.  You could use it to make a male card for a birthday or similar, or for a Farewell for some-one travelling. 


This sentiment is an old SU one, and was one of the first I ever purchased. Momento Paris Dusk ink onto a scrap of white which was then swiped with ink on a sponge to take the starkness from it. This is mounted on SU TT and some of the yellow used for the Congrats sentiment. 


He is such a klutz! Love him. I rough cut around the image and mounted it onto a bit of scrap SU Tempting Turquoise, and the DP is also from SU and comes with the set attached to the This and That Notebook/album. I used a scrap piece of an embossed card (very old) and attached the DP and then the image, and finally creating a banner using a piece of scrap card, and folding it so that it sits up off the page. All this was then added to a commercial blank white card. 




I added some bling from Annabel Stamps. 


Hope you like it - hubby is waiting for me to cook the fish for dinner, so I will attach some challenges later!

Oh, the Kindle is just too convenient at times, isn't it? I must admit I do love mine. I also love your cards - I particularly like the image on the retirement one! They're both fab though. Thanks for taking part in Handmade Harbour's challenge this week x

I love your Australian kangaroo. I was very young when Australia won the America's Cup but I still remember watching it on TV. The sentiment is awesome too - so true! Your image on your second card is a cracker!! Thanks so much for playing along at ATSM xx
