A friend is someone...

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How was your weekend?

Ours was a very busy one, I am starting to make head way on my projects for Canvas Corp Brand and managed to get a video recorded and edited.

A busy morning as hubby and I are off to the cinema this afternoon to see Rogue One, the prequal to Star Wars.  Have you seen it?  Would be interesting to see what you think of it, hubby is a big Star Wars fan.

Don't forget to check out my Mixed Media blog, new projects added every Wednesday and Saturday.

A cat card today featuring Tim Holtz Crazy Cats stamps.

Step by Step

1. Scalloped DL white base card.
2. Matted and layered orange card which has been distressed with DI Rusty Hinge.
3. To make the next layer I used Tim Holtz Sunburst stencil and used Gesso through the stencil, once this was dry I then used DI squeezed lemonade, fossilized amber and spiced marmalade, I then used a baby wipe to clean off the ink from the Gesso, distressed around the edges with rusty hinge before matting and layering onto base card.njnnnn
4. Stamped both cats with Versafine Vintage sepia then embossed with clear embossing powder, distressed with spiced marmalade and coloured with vintage photo distress marker before cutting out and adhering to card.
5. To finish off I stamped the Dylusions quote with Versafine vintage sepia and embossed, distressed with squeezed lemonade and distressed the edges with rusty hinge.
