Angela's recent post using the Lauren Burch for Stampendous Cats inspired me to ink up my new Mama Elephant's The Cat's Meow stamp. I wasn't in a colouring mood and so decided to paper piece the cats, using some snippets of patterened paper from the bit box. Once I'd glued them all onto the kraft background, I coloured in their ears, any items then had on or were holding and added a little colour to their cheeks.
I stamped one of the balloons from the stamp set and some more balloons and sentiment from Mama Elephant's Celebration Balloons and paper pieced these using some scraps of coloured card. I couldn't be bothered to cut out the centres of some of the letters and so coloured these in in a browny colour to try and match the kraft card. I drew in the strings with a black fineliner and added some faux stitching round the edge of the image. To finish, I added glossy accents to the balloons and the cat's noses, before mounting it on green card on a landscape 5x7 card blank.
As I used lots of bits I'm heading over to the Snippet's Playground, to see what mischief Parsnip has been up to!
