Kitty Cat Prayers- A Card from Scraps :-)

Hi Again Stampers! 

When I created the card for the last post (SUO81 Make Something Masculine), I had stamped the leaves using Sponge Daubers, “fussy-cut” them out and sponged additional ink onto the images.  

When I removed the stamped images up from my Whisper White scrap, I noticed that the sponging had created a very unique pattern, so the ‘’hoarder” in me kept this piece of paper to create another card using the FabFri28 Colors :-).

To create this card:
After creating the reverse mask pattern with the leaves and Sponge Daubers (Old Olive, Tangerine Tango and Rich Razzleberry), cover the leaves with a loose "mask" and use the Color Spritzer Tool with Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker to add a bit more interest.
Trim the sponged panel and mount onto Basic Black cardstock.  Either stamp the sentiment using Basic Black Classic Ink or print using My Digital Studio (MDS)- I had this sentiment in my "stash" of printed images as well :-)
Use the Big Shot™ along with the Beautifully Baroque Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Layer onto Basic Black cardstock and add the focal image. 
Use the Big Shot™ to cut the non-Stampin’ Up! cat die cut from Basic Black cardstock and stamp the lacy flower from Mixed Bunch using the Illuminate inkpad and adhere the the cat over the sentiment. 
Attach the 5/8” Basic Black triple Satin Ribbon bow using Mini Glue Dots and adhere the entire panel to the Whisper White card base.  Add Pearls to the corners to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Gently Falling, Thoughts and Prayers (MDS), Mixed Bunch

Ink: Printer Ink- Black, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango, Illuminate, Black Stampin' Write Marker

Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Basic Black

Accessories: Big Shot™, Beautifully BaroqueTextured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Sponge Daubers, Pearls, 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon (retired), Color Spritzer Tool (retired), Non-SU! Cat Die Cut

Thanks again for stopping by- have a great Tuesday!!
