Cats in the Bath

     Have you ever glanced at an image and just had to giggle out loud?  That's how this one from Create with TLC struck me and I had to use it right away.


     I printed the image twice, colored both of them with my ProMarkers, and glued one of them to two layers of white CS.  Then I fussy cut the cats from the one with three layers and glued the cats onto the first image.  This gave some great texture without the kind of open dimension I would have gotten using pop dots or foam tape.  The white border I left around the cats when cutting makes them pop off the background.

     I used a punch (Fiskars) on the corners of the image, then matted it with a die cut, rounded rectangle (Spellbinders), and a second, larger frame cut out of dp with the next larger size of die.  Those were mounted onto a second dp with a scrap of text dp added to one side.  I finished it with metallic twine and the sentiment, which was also corner punched.

     Challenges:

Aud Sentiments (Top L to Bottom R)
Crafting from the Heart

     The weekend stretches before us and beckons us to be creative and happy.  So, I wish you - Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Your kitties are SO CUTE, Connie! My cat would not stand to have a bath LOL - but they keep themselves pretty clean all by themselves, don't they? Your image is darling, and I love that you printed it twice, and used bright, happy, sunshiny colors with it!
