The Cat Has a Plan

Hello.  Welcome.  Gosh, February!!!  Whizzz, whizzzz.  New month, new challenges.  Over at Rubber Dance we have combined the colour and theme challenges into a month long inspiration filled party.  Do hop over and check out the inspiration from the team and join your stamped makes for a chance to win loverly Rubber Dance stamps.  But first....  The Cat!!!!

I went with the challenge colours, orange, turquoise and lime green.  I stamped Curious Cat on a die cut panel and embossed him.  Then I masked and stamped and embossed La Mappa with lime green ink and clear embossing powder.  This acted as a resist when I gave the map a water colour wash of orange brushos.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment from Adore Me on vellum, tore the edges and fussy cut the cat's ears so I could tuck the vellum behind them. 

Hop over and check out the other makes from the team.  You can use the challenge colours and/or the theme, hearts, and join the fun.  See you there.  Hugz
