Eek! Thanks to my win at CASology last week (#humblebrag) I get to guest alongside the talented design team this week! The current cue word is most timely:
Time is running out to get those valentines made for the big day this weekend. This seems to be my year to make cute and mushy ones, and today is no exception:
I started by stamping and embossing these sweet cats and colouring them using distress markers. I also stamped and embossed the sentiment and gave the panel a light wash of distress marker pink. I did the same with the perimeter of the heart, not that you can see it in my photo. If I continue using patterned paper at the volume I used it on this card, I should be through my current stash by the dawn of the next century.
I used a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, but with the size of my focal image, it really didn't look right on a standard A2 card. Luckily, it just so happened my cluster of elements was quite nicely centred when I chopped off the right side to make a square card! Of course, since that challenge is done, it doesn't really matter, does it? ;) I am adding this to CAS on Sunday (valentine), Just Us Girls (word week: valentine) and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday (have a heart).
On behalf of the clean and simple regulars at CASology, I hope you will play along!
