Happy Monday! I had another chance to play with my new My Favorite Things goodies and decided to take part in their latest sketch challenge.
I started by using a Geometric Grid stencil for my background, inking it with Peacock Feathers distress ink. I then used some stamps from the Cat-itude (love the name!) stamp set to stamp some fish on a strip of cardstock which was first inked with Peacock Feathers. The fish are stamped with Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn inks. I cut and coloured my cat, also from Cat-itude, using Zig markers and a paintbrush to dilute the colours: yellow, orange and pink. The pink was then used to colour the circle mat which was cut using a Simon Says Stamp stitched circle die, with a bit of orange thrown in for good measure. I then splattered the pink ink on the geometric background and fish border. Finally, I added the fun Cat-itude sentiment and a few clear sequins to finish things off.
I had lots of fun putting this card together and trying some new techniques!
I'm also going to link up this card in Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday challenge: Cute and Cuddly.
