Lazy Sunday ... wot? AGAIN?!??!?!

Morning readers,

Yesterday I was at a Scrap and Stamp Show and, yes, I confess .. I DID buy new stash - AGAIN! But, what's the point in going if you don't buy anything?!?!? 

Today's first make does not, however, use new new stash but recent new stash! I love this dog and cat set despite also having the fab Katzelkraft "grumpy cats", I waited till they were available in mini with the dogs too - reckon you might all be seeing more of these!

And a closer view of the image,stamp/stencil work and highlighting
Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippets of card in white and pearl grey
  • Stampers Anonymous crazy cat (mini) stamped using Memento tuxedo black on to the white snippet and again on to a post it which I then cut out to use as a mask
  • Taking the snippet of white card and, with the cat mask in place, I taped a Tim Holtz stencil to it and applied Memento rosebud and grape jelly through the stencil using a sponge
  • Stampers Anonymous checkered border stamped using Ranger Archival fuchsia ink
  • Impression Obsession "HELLO" and "AWESOME" stamped using Versafine onyx black
  • DRS Designs splatter image stamped using Hero Arts neon yellow ink
  • Removing the mask I used Derwent coloursoft pencils to colour the image, blended with the finesse pen
  • Gelly roll white gel pen used to highlight text and image and to doodle a border on the grey matting layer

I'll be entering the above make for the following challenges:-
  1. Pixie's Crafty Workshop - challenge No. 279/280 - USE SNIPPETS
  2. Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday challenge - A HINT OF PINK (used two pinks AND a Hero Arts ink pad)
  3. That's Crafty - April 28th challenge - BRIGHT
