When it’s a cat!
This clever idea is one shared by a fellow consultant, Doris Taylor, at a recent consultant crop day. Having a tendency to crazy cat lady behaviours myself, I couldn’t resist making up a couple for this card. I plan to send it to a lady I have recently met – I know we are going to become firm friends.
To create the cat you need the August Stamp of the Month, What a Hoot (S1408).
This gorgeous stamp set can be yours for just $5 when accompanied by a $75 order or $27 full retail price and is available during August 2014 only. To make the outline for the cat’s body I cut my stamp. “Ahhh!”, I hear you scream… but it’s OK. If I want to use it as an owl I can position the two pieces on my block and still have an owl stamp. (Or place another order for $75 and get a second stamp set )
Next I drew a tail and went over the lines a few times to mimic the doodle qualities of the stamp and then I fussy cut the whole cat, added face details with markers and they were purr-fect pussy cats. The flowers come from the same stamp set as the owls. I coloured them with my lovely NEW Shin Han Alcohol Markers. The sentiment is from A Budding Friendship (D1602) The orange band at the bottom of the card is just 2 strips of our NEW Sunset Chevron Washi Tape (Z2005)
I have several other critter ideas I’ll be sharing at my Paper Picnic on Saturday Aug 16. The workshop runs from 10am to 4.30pm. Contact me for further details firstname.lastname@example.org
