Santa's Helpers {Sunny Studio Stamps}

Hello there!!   Today I have a card to share with you using the little kitten in a stocking image from the Santa's Helpers stamp set by Sunny Studio Stamps!  I had my distress inks out, and I was playing around with making my own watercolor-esque patterned paper.  I used a bit of Barn Door, Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover to create my striped background.  I intended for this card to look a but like a Christmas package, wrapped in pretty striped paper, with a cute tag hanging from it.  I stamped, colored and diecut the stocking image using the coordinating Santa's Helpers dies.  I used Lucky Clover ink to add some color to the bottom right of the tag for a little more interest,  Then I mounted the image the tag with foam tape, and punched a hole to thread my twine through and tied a bow.  I wrapped the twine around the back of the watercolor piece, and taped it down with scotch tape, and popped the tag up with foam tape before adhering the panel to a red card base.  I felt like something was missing, so I added some tiny googly eyes to the kitten.  I think his wide eyes add a bit of whimsy and it works well with the playful, whimsical striped background.
