I have been seeing the lovely skinnies on the Something Completely Different challenge blog and have been inspired to have a go. This week the theme is cats. I love cats, I have two and they are my babies, so I was appalled to find I had absolutely nothing cat related in my stash!! I was sure I must have had loads!
Anyway I found a stamp about kitty feet and a paddy paw punch in the end, so I decided to use my two lovelies as the stars in lieu of any cat stamps. All I used were some paper scraps, not that it has made an enormous dint in the stash pile, lol.
I made a black skinni out of some shiny handmade paper, covered it with some 7gypsies and a spotty paper scrap and also punched and cut some circles of the same papers to mount the protraits onto. I cut the kitty feet part out of the stamp and inked the edges and punched some cat paws from the red reverse of the scraps of 7gypsies. The paws were a faff to stick so I only did 3! I have highlighted them in glossy accents, you can see it;s still drying in the photo.
Hope you like my first skinni, and my cats of course, Poppy and George (in his thinner days, lol)
Here as well is the LO we did last night at Craft Den. Really, really lovely idea with the floral vine stamps, which all of us had missed in the sale and we all snapped up last night! I have added some more details when I got home and also stamped some of the leaves onto the blue double dot paper and cut them out to form bouquets. The stamps are highlighted with white pen and stickles. We made some really easy and effective paper roses, which I am delighted with and will be using again. Not sure if this one will fit in the album now as the roses are quite thick! I have finished off with a title cut with the new T!m Holtz sizzix alphabet, which I can't remember the name of now. Paper are all Bo Bunny.
