Hi, everyone, it’s Saturday so it’s Crazy 4 Challenges time! Today Helen is challenging us to use an animal on our card or project—any animal except a bear or a bunny—so I’m going with a cat, a black cat :)
My card started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then I stamped up some patterned paper using Diagonal Stripes Background and Black Licorice ink and Orange Fizz ink. My MFT team mate Michele Boyer did the double color thing a while back and I couldn’t wait to try it out—love being able to add more than one color!! I cut that out with the larger angled panel from Blueprints 18 and set it aside. Next I cut a panel from Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth 110lb paper with Blueprints 15 Die-namics and stamped the two pumpkins and cat from Witch Way Is the Candy? with Black Licorice Hybrid ink, masking the cat. I colored the images with Copic markers and adhered it to my card base.
I added a strip of Black Licorice card stock to the stamped upper panel and tied around some black hemp and an Orange Fizz button. To keep the twine in place, I punched out a couple of notches on each side before tying it on.
I popped that panel up on foam, stamped the sentiment, cut it in pieces, and popped it up as well.
I stamped the cat again on the inside, along with a sentiment from Spooky Sentiments.
