Kliban cat 3 panel card

I mentioned before that I love the Kliban cat, and that I have lots of Kliban cat rubber stamps that I hadn't used in several years. When I found some white, 3 panel cards in a craft drawer I decided to use 3 of my Kliban stamps that would work well with the panel card.

With a brush and ink pads I stippled on a few colors of green ink under the cats on the 3rd panel. I then rubber stamped with a couple colors of green ink- grass. Years ago, I did a lot of scene stamping and it was my favorite kind of stamping.
cloud stencil and stipple brush my well used stencil that I made to look like clouds that I made out of a thin plastic sheet many, many years ago. Also the brush that I use to stipple in clouds. As you can see this handmade stencil is very stained from lots of use. I have dedicated brushes for each ink color that I use to stipple with.
I loved how the card came out. I hope you like it too.

Over the past 2 days we got 9 inches of snow, but today is sunny and it is suppose to be near 30..what strange weather, but I guess I can't complain, because we hadn't had a significant snow storm all winter, just a few dustings of the white stuff. Hopefully this snow won't last long.
I hope you have time to create some art today. Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog to visit.

Hi Elaine,

What a great card -- a Sunday well-spent for sure! I went to a Zumba class which was also great fun. :)

I ended up giving this card to my son, Steven for his 39th. birthday. Steven loves to fish and he also likes cats. Steven really liked his hand stamped birthday card.
