Sending Peace Kitty

Hi Friends!

This card was designed a few items that I had in my stash – the sentiment had been printed off a while ago and I also had the little die cut black kitty and tree ready to go.

I was inspired by the Splitcoaststampers SC742 Sketch for the layout and will also be linking to the Power Poppy “”Rock That Mojo” Challenge (of course, the sketch was my initial “mojo”).

If you have not had chance to check out the above challenge sites yet, I hope you will do so- tremendous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Using Distress Oxide Inks- I used Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Picked Raspberry, tap the ink onto a silicone craft mat, spritz with water and press a piece of white cardstock into the ink.  Continue to layer ink until you are satisfied with the results, using a heat tool to dry the panel between each layer.

Cut the panel into four pieces, mount onto black cardstock and trim close to the edges.

Print out the digi sentiment from Roses & Chamomile (Power Poppy) onto white cardstock, press the cardstock into the distress oxide inks (as in the step above) and dry with a heat tool.  Die cut with a stitched circle die, mount onto another circle die cut from black cardstock.

Ink the Dictionary background stamp with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, stamp onto kraft cardstock, heat set the ink with a heat tool and die cut with a stitched rectangle die. 

Adhere the crochet lace and strip of white seam binding (wrapping the ends behind the panel). 

Add the four strips of the oxide background with dimensional foam (or chipboard) along with the mounted sentiment onto the panel.

Adhere the die cut tree and tiny kitty die and mount the seam binding bow with the wooden button in the center.

Finish off the card with a few pearls around the bottom edge of the sentiment.

I love this - I'm partial to a black cat as one of mine is black - Jet. I love those coloured panels behind him and that touch of lace - very clever to combine all those challenges - thanks for sharing with us at JOSTTT019 - hope to see you again next month
