MMM31 -animals

A very last-minute card for Make My Monday challenge 31 - animals. I got this lovely Jayne Netley Mayhew stamp of a siamese cat from Joanna Sheen as part of a Christmas voucher spend, and had to try it out. Very simply stamped in black versafine onto white card, cut out with an Xcut die and inked round the edge with SU crumb cake ink while still in the die.The markings on the cat are also crumb cake, applied with a cotton bud, eyes coloured with promarker. The mat using the next size up die was SU baja breeze card, darkened with baja breeze ink. The DP was a digi download, from Lesley Wharton many moons ago -have just checked her blog, and it was May 2009 -doesn't time fly! Mats are crumb cake and baja breeze card, and the white edges of the base card were sponged with baja breeze, as the white was too harsh.

  1. Hi Vronnie. He's beautiful. I love the colours in the SU range, (and their names). Sadly they aren't available out here, and UK agents are not allowed to do international sales. The crumb cake was perfect for a Siamese. I like your frame die too. A lovely card. Kate x

  6. This is brilliant and the cat is gorgeous - not tried the stamps but have JNM CD's which have loads of animal images. Love the colour scheme too which picks up the eyes
