Hey there, I'm back again with another Hope You Can Cling To challenge card in support of breast cancer patients and their families.  Patricia's "Think P-I-N-K" challenge was a fun one!  She wanted us to think about pink a little differently by creating a card using products, images, sentiments or techniques that begin with the letters PINK.  Here are mine:

P = purr, pink, princess, precious
I = ink, inked edges
N = Nestabilities, new stamp set, napping, nestled
K = Kit the Kat, kittens

Fun, huh?  This is a new set for me called Kit the Kat and it's from Our Craft Lounge.  It's on the retiring list (40% off in the OCL online store) so I hurried and got mine before they sold out.  I'm glad I did...they colored up really fast and they are just adorable!  I started by stamping the sitting kitten on white card stock then used the Out-of-the-Box with a Nestie technique to cut out it's tail. 

The sleeping cat and yarn were stamped, colored with Copic markers, cut out then popped up on foam. Twine was used to tie a bow and attach the charm. It's funny, this charm came in a set with seashells and I remember thinking to myself what am I going to do with that fish was actually the first one I used!  I decided not to use a sentiment inside or out so it could be used for just about anything.  A Clear Glaze pen was used on the kitty's little noses and also the gems on the collar.  I guess that's about it for this one.

Copic coloring:

Cats:  W4, W3, W2, W1, W00, RV11, 0  Yarn (inside and out):  RV11, RV10
