My card swap group had another birthday. I just received my order of my two new distress oxides “speckled egg” and “hickory smoke” and made a brick wall stencil background with these two colours. I used the cute cats from My favorite Things, the “house cats” stamp set. Perfect for the cats (and dogs) challenge from Make my Monday. I coloured them in my C0-C5 and W0-W5 (and C/W7-C/W9 for the dark stripes) and added dome R30 cheeks with white gel pen dots. The plant got a pot in the same W colours and is in the greens G20-G28. I added a banner from Lawn Fawn “virtual friends add on” in C0/1 and R24/21, as well as party hats in the same colour from a Mama Elephant, set called “the dog’s woof” I added some rose gold stickles to it for some extra sparkle. With 2 critters, I had to enter the 2 Crafty Critters monthly challenge and the anything goes one from Crafty Calendar.
Last but not least I used the sentiment from My favorite things, the “anything but basic Birthday Wishes”. I absolutely love the MFT sentiment lines. Always something fitting for every situation. This time I choose the Me Me Me sentiment, as I love that it fits the cats’ attitude. Of course, I could not resist using my new CREAlies die and mounted everything on black card stock to give it a framed look.
