Kitty Love


I made a valentine for a friend who goes back to seventh grade.  I wanted it to be similar to a child’s valentine, in that it doesn’t open and fold.  It turned out pretty cute.

After the kitty stamp is colored, wet the rest of the paper with a brush and water (avoiding the kitty).  Scribble Zig markers on a craft sheet (yellow, blue, pink).  Spray the color just a little with water.  Paint the colors on the paper horizontally, overlapping the colors.  Let this dry, then stamp the rest.
