You Are How Old?...a Crazy Cat Card


It’s going to feel like 100ºF today! This photo was being shared on Facebook today so I thought I would share it with you too.

 




These, of course, are wind turbines that generate electricity and they are scattered through out south-western Ontario – much to the bane of some people. Hopefully we get a thunderstorm today and it will cut the humidity somewhat.



This is yet another Crazy Cat card I created. This one meets the requirements for this challenge: http://www.scrapyland-blog.com

 


The yellow checked paper covered a 5 ½” blank card base. The brown cardstock was run through a Cuttlebug birthday die and then the middle circle was die cut with a Spellbinders die. A piece of scrap yellow cardstock that was first sponged with some Distress Dried Marigold was placed behind the brown. It’s hard to see the sponging in the photo but you can see it in real life. The cat was coloured with water colour pencils; blended with water and cut out. The hat was stamped and cut out as well and a slit was made to insert the cat’s one ear. The balloon was die cut with a Little B die with a splash of white paint added as a hi-lite and tied to the cat’s tail with black thread. The sentiment is computer generated and on a die cut tag with the edges inked in black.



Don’t forget you are more than welcome to save any cards to your Pinterest account for future reference. Simply place the curser over the picture until the Pinterest sign shows up and enter. This will take you to your Pinterest account.



Have a safe, happy and creative weekend everyone. I may post another quilt over the weekend so pop in for a visit.

  



Cheers

Violet

I adore crazy cat cards as well as crazy cats. Wonderful design, Violet, and great coloring on the cat! Thanks so much for joining in the "Anything Goes" challenge at Scrapy Land this fortnight. Hope to see you for our next challenge also.
