Today I'm in a catty mood ... hence I finally made a card I've been wanting to make ever since I got some stamps from Katzelkraft ...
Don't forget to laugh ... I thought this sentiment (French Quotes by Katzelkraft) was purrfect for the slightly grumpy looking tom (Les Chats Russes by Katzelkraft) , especially given that there is a rather tasty looking rat sitting right next to him.
I stamped both, cat and rat, with black Memento, coloured them with alcohol markers and applied a coat of Mod Podge. Once dry, I went to town sponging with Crushed Curry ink, adding my stenciling (ARTplorations Stencils: Honeycomb Delight reversed) with Pumpkin Pie, adding some watercolouring to ground and shade using Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso inks before stamping the raindrops (Mur De Pluie by Katzelkraft) and border (Mixed Media Elements by STAMPlorations) in Crumb Cake and the chevrons (Mixed Media Grunge by STAMPlorations) in Pumpkin Pie. I added and coloured (alcohol markers) my sentiment and layered on a red base card to finish.
I am entering my card at:

Next up is a card I made as an entry for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop ...
This card is my tribute to re-using. The background is made from a piece of card I used to roller some ink off my brayer when I made my video here, the pink sponged circle started life as a mask when making my cards here and the green sponging was just rubbing off some excess ink I didn't want to go to waste. I enhanced my background by simply stamping Perfume by Kaisecraft (check local retailer) down one side, layered my doily and partially sponged circle on top and added twine and charm. I stamped the teacups (cover gift Quick Cards Made Easy in 2015) on my sponged die-cut pierced rectangle, added my sentiment (Sweet Little Sentiments by Clearly Besotted) and layered on top to finish.
A last look at my finished cards ...
That's it from me for now ...
Have a lovely day!
