Deep Sea Diving cat Ft. MFT

by - November 06, 2022


Hi folks, 

I always look forward to MFT's Cardmaking Superstar competition each year. It pushes me to find creative ways to use stamps that I already own and get inspired from things around me! For this year's entry into the Clean and Simple Genius category, I was inspired by a children's book I saw a while back that included the story of a deep-sea diving cat. I mean it makes sense... a cat does need its fresh supply of fish! What better way than to get it fresh from the ocean! 

I have always struggled with Clean and Simple cards. For some reason, I cannot stand the color white. I always feel like I have forgotten to add something or just looks incomplete. Lately, I have realized that white space doesn't have to mean 'white'. It's just empty! So, capitalizing on my newfound revelation, I decided to start off my card using a turquoise cardstock. I started off by masking the space for the cat and ink blending the bottom 1/3rd of the card. Then, I stamped the flora and sea bed using Mermazing stamp set. I colored it using color pencils and add some soft white highlights and glow using a color pencil as well. 

Then, I stamped a cat from Cat-astrophe and few fishes from Mermazing and Gill Friends and colored them using alcohol markers. For the scuba helmet, I drew a circle over the cat and fussy cut the entire image :) Added some bubbles and a sentiment to finish off my card! 

That's it folks! I hope you liked this fun card :) 

Happy Crafting,
