Pink Cat Fall theme DT challenge

A DT challenge was issued to create a fall themed card. I decided to use the cat plate and cover the little cat pillow with leaves to make it look like she's sitting on top of a leaf pile. I'm pretty happy with the results! Pink Cat is colored with copics and then her body is flocked and her eyes and nose are covered with diamond glaze to make them shiny. This is my absolute favorite thing to do with these super cute cat stamps from Pink Cat Studio.

I originally wanted to have the cat in black to tie in with Fall and Halloween, but she's so dark that you couldn't see her detail, so I changed her to the sable color. She is popped up on pop dots to add even more dimension. The leaves were punched out with punches and then inked and rubbed with a stylus to curl them.

On vacation!

Taking the girls to see grandmas and grandpas....we'll be back after the 18th! I'm going to try and post a post without pics on sunday, but I don't know if it will work on my parents' computer as it's not the most co-operative machine!

Pink Cat Fabric Challenge

Here's what I created for Pink Cat Studio's challenge to use fabric on a card. Now I worked at a fabric store for 11 years and so I've aquired a LOT of fabric! I first stamped the image from Lily and Tweet onto my card base.

I then stamped the same image onto shimmery fabric and used the same technique as paper piecing to add the fabric to the card.

I colored the parts of Lily and tweet that were not going to be covered in fabric with copic markers.

I trimmed the fuzzy fabric (it's name escapes me at the moment) over and over, bit by bit till it fit Lily's boa.

My final touch was flocking tweet, adding stickles to their glasses and adding the flower jewel to Lily's hat. I kept the card super simple and am so pleased with how it turned out!

I used SU!'s word window punch on the lower left corner, stamped the sentiment inside and highlighted it with a coordinating copic marker to make it pop! Enjoy!
