Cat Lovers Hop: Newton's Naptime

I am having trouble with Blogger. 
I'm sorry, but I cannot comment on blogs that only allow Google account users to leave comments without moderation. I have no idea why and any suggestions are most welcome!


It's Day 2 of the Cat Lover's Blog Hop! Head over to Janis's blog to see the wonderful creations already linked up! Why not come and join in with the fun and the chance to make some new friends and win some paw-some prizes!

Today's card is made with Newton's Naptime and I took inspiration for the colouring of Newton from the lovely cards on the website.

Newton's image was coloured with Copics markers and fussy cut leaving a thin white border.

 Copics used:
Newton: E30, E31, E33, E35, W1, W3, W5 and Blender
Blankets: YR14, YR04, BG11, BG13, W1 and Blender

I made the background with patterned design paper - in retrospect I should have inked the edges of the papers to add more definition, but it's too late now! I matted the dps onto teal card and popped Newton on foam pads. The lovely sentiment comes with the stamp set and this too is raised on foam pads.

That's all for today!
Come and join in the fun!
