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.
