Catitude: Cats vs dogs!

THANK YOU for all the kind words and support for the new website design! 🙂

A while back I made this dog card with MFT stamps that you guys really liked – it had the dogs inside and outside the fence:

Catitude: Cats vs dogs

The Catitude set of stamps came out and just screamed to me to do them in natural colors like the dogs….while they’re not a comparable set,exactly (I’d love to have cats the same size as the dog stamps. Hey, MFT…… 🙂 …..they still have catitude, and they’re out sitting by a fence! Just in watercolor pencil this time. My first attempt with my new Albrecht Durer set. Watch the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube!

And MFT just came out with a new release, which includes the adorable Sunny Skies and Stitched Cloud Edge dies. Can you just see how much we can use these in backgrounds? Fun!

Another creation with this stamp set – I was inspired to make an art journal page while I had the stamps out. I added the kitties and the center sentiment from the set, watercolored the background, drew it all with sharpie – then did watercolor pencil inside all the images I drew!


I’m off to CHA – see you guys from there soon! I’ll be on periscope and posting vlogs as I’m able.

  1. Cute card and great watercolor tips. I am a dog and a cat person.

  7. I enjoyed this! Awesome watercolour and card! Cats rule!

  8. Thank you for the tutorial, I really enjoyed it and will try these technics sometime soon. I always thought I was a dog person, but after getting a cat 6 years ago as our house pet, I am no longer sure….I guess I love all sorts of critters.

  9. I’m definitely a dog-lover, but these kitties are pretty cute! I have some Albrecht Durer pencils, but just a small set – maybe that’s why they haven’t had much use – I should think about buying some companions…
    I wonder why MFT didn’t make the cats in the same scale as the dogs, tho – it seems an obvious thing to do, so we could mix them on a card – I can think of some pretty funny cards, if they were “together”!

  10. I’d be considered both plus a hedge hog.I love animals period, I have two cats and two dogs as well.Really love how easy the new site is Sandy.Its wonderful.I love the loads of info.The shading map is helping so much.Big thank you.

  11. Yep, it’s cats for me, so of course I ADORE your card. Thanks for answering my question yesterday about rolling ruler, I’m excited to sign up for your class soon. Yes, we had indoor cats for 30 years, now
    are “caretakers” for about 10 feral cats who live in our neighborhood.

  15. Beautiful card! I’m not a cat or dog person, I’m both! I have 2 dogs and 3 cats (because I’m crazy!).

  16. Dogs will always win, but the Cats are cute – in a non dog way too. Spoken by a dog lover! Have fun at CHA. P.S. I would really like you to do a Cruise and Crop. I would be the first person to sign up!
