The front of the card only has feline related words but if you open it…………………….
my little cat is sitting all proud ( as they do ) right on top of the sentiment ! Don’t know if you can see what with my terrible photography but when the card is closed the rats tail can be seen protruding from the side . Hope this is feline enough for you Zoe !
Why not pop over to the The Craft Room to see the fabulous inspirational pieces by the DT whom I have to say are a rather nice bunch of ladies and all of whom are very talented indeed !
While I was having a little nose around blog land I came across a fabulous and new to me challenge site, Just Add Ink , I have to say I was very impressed by the DT who’s work was both beautiful and inspiring and as soon as I have posted this I will be going back to take a closer look. Their theme this week is ” Just add ……..a Die Cut ” I do love my inks but I equally love my die cuts too so I thought I would have a go here as well !
This card was a bit of an experiment in more ways than one. I took an image from Designer Digitals and printed it onto parchment paper. I used my sewing machine to adhere the image to the card a first for me and it shows ! I then die cut some leaves with the tattered florals die by Tim Holtz , I embossed one and then dabbed it with a little green distress ink to give it a little emphasis . I then placed it inside the little pocket that I had created on the front of the card you can just about see the leaf showing through. I used an eyelet and ribbon to close up the edge so that the leaf wouldn’t fall out ! I quite like the effect and have to say it looks a lot better in real life !
Have decided to throw caution to the wind and enter this card as well even though the photo is not perfect ! Here I once again used one of my Tim Holtz on the edge dies to create the borders and some DPs from my stash ( don’t know who’s they are the cover has come off ! ) I inked the edges with Ranger distress inks , a bit of embossing and another eyelet and some ribbon ( looks like I am going through an eyelet phase ) I took and old button and used some silver stickles on it and added it to the top of one of my trees , and there you have it. I hope the lovely ladies at Just Add Ink will like it too ! Please pop over and visit them I think you will be pleasantly surprised as I was by their amazing work.
Anyway that’s enough gabbing from me I do have a suitcase to pack you know !!
