Welcome back to day three of the teasers for the March release from Clearly Besotted. Today’s card features some very cheeky cats and another great sentiment from the soon to be released Laugh Out Loud Again. The cats are from an A6 set called Cheeky Chappy which houses 6 cats and some lovely images to create a little sunny scene.
I took two of the images which are mirrors of each other and made a birthday card but there is a lot of fun to be had with the sun ray image too.
My Copics got another airing for this card and true to form, I coloured the cats, hats, cake and pressies, fussy cut them and then worked on my background. There are coordinating dies for all the images in the set if you prefer.
My background was created by blending Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean Distress Inks onto a white panel, adding some splatters with the Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer and then dabbing them with a paper towel to lift some ink. The panel was then adhered to my 4.75″ square base card using DST.
I took a 4.5″ panel of white cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot with an MFT Circle Stax die to create my window. I used DST to attach this to the base card so not loads of dimension on this card. The sentiment was white heat embossed onto black cardstock and then trimmed with an MFT Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strip. I popped this up with foam tape.
Lastly, I arranged the cats, present and cake around the sentiment. Some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer and Tonic Crystal Glaze were added to various bits of the images for added interest. The sentiment makes me laugh, I can think of a fair few people to send this one too! And I imagine they will send it right back again!
