Peeking Kitty

Hi it's Roxie here working with these happy cats to create a the perfect scene.

The kitties and large flower were colored with Copic markers: large cat – special black, Y35, YR23,31, RV00, small cat – C00,1,2,3,5,7 RV02, flower – V12,15,17, BV08, shading on leaves - G29

The sky is sponged on using my hand cut template, you can find a pattern to cut your own here (it's a link back to my personal blog).
The fence is cut with a Sizzix die which I then cut in two to stretch the width of the card. I stamped the fence with a small texture image from Biblical Impressions and rather than pull out the grey ink pad I just stamped off with the black onto scrap paper before stamping the fence. It’s attached to the card with Aleene’s tacky glue.

The grass is cut with a Martha Stewart punch then sponged with ink and attached with tacky glue.

The small flowers are a Fiskars border punch and when I want just the flower I cut a ½”strip to insert into the punch under the flower. If you need a visual see the second photo in this post. The center is cut using a Sizzix button die and glued to the flower. The stems and leaves are free hand cutting and they are also attached with tacky glue.

The corner flower arrangement is two Martha Stewart punches for the greenery, those smaller flowers again and an EK Success punch for the large flower. The large flower is dry embossed using a metal ball stylus and folded paper towel for cushion.

I used the Perfect Layers tools from Perfect Paper Crafting to cut the even borders. Use any brand craft knife for cutting. A tutorial video can be found on the company site.

Paper:Neenah speckled base, The Paper Company – purple and yellow, Beckett Expressions for cats image and large flower, Stampin Up – green, yellow for small flower centers, unknown white for fence and top panel, Die Cuts with a View for large flower center

Ink:Memento – Tuxedo Black for image and also stamped off before stamping the fence, Stampin Up – greens for sponging grass
