Tropical Kitty

Aloha friends,

How is your summer, besides very hot? I know. It's very hot here, too. We had a tropical storm push through with some strong gusts. Now we have to clean up and cut up at least one tree that came down. And on to the card :)

I couldn't wait to get my paws on this new stamp set by Newton's Nook and will enter it into their Inky Paws Challenge 34 - Summer! 

Using color pencils, I gently applied color to the image, then blended with a bit of Gamsol. If you look really closely, I've heat embossed the backgrounds of this card, as well as the next 6 cards or so with pearl embossing powder and a flourish-y background stamp for added interest and texture. It used up almost half the jar of embossing powder doing all the backgrounds!
