special card for a friend

a friend of mine had to put her beloved cat 'Sing' to sleep the other day. This is always a hard thing for any pet lover to day so I made her a card today to send to her. It's awesome that Stampin' Up! have such appropriate stamps in their catalogue like this one called 'C for Cat'. There is also a 'D for Dog' set too.
I used the cat stamp for the front and two other stamps for the message inside of the card.
To get the great effect around the cat I wet some watercolour paper and then stamped with Crumb Cake (was called Kraft) and as it's die based ink it bleed. Once I dried the paper with my trusty heat tool I then stamped over the top with Early Espresso - I love the result!
Finished the card with some paper piercing, a button and some ribbon and it's all done.
I hope Linda and her family are comforted by my card as I can't be there in person to give her a hug!.
RIP Sing.
