Purrfect :)

Good morning and happy Saturday to you all! It's time for another challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. This week it's my turn to play hostess, and I would like to see some "Handmade Embellishments" on your projects. :)

I inked up one of the adorable cats from the Kitty Kapers 1 set by Krafty Artist Emilie Goulet. The papers are all from My Mind's Eye. The image was matted on Spellbinders Circles and Lacey Circles. The sentiment is included in the Kitty Kapers 1 set. For my handmade embellishments, I created some little balls of yarn with a cardstock base, Scor Tape and some embroidery floss. (The cardstock is not quite that blue in real's a deep teal that really does match the paper, but unfortunately it photographed a little "off")

The image was stamped on Neenah cardstock with Memento Ink and coloured with Copic markers. I had intended to have the lady's arm lined up with the edge of the die cut circle, but I misjudged the size I needed by quite a bit...which is why her arm is kind of floating, lol. I think this is such a sweet image...I just love the look of pure bliss on this kitty's face. :)

Cat: E13, E57, E59, E93, E95, E97, E99  Collar: BG000, BG01, BG05, BG07, BG09, C5, C7  Sleeve: BG11, BG23, BG75, C5  Hand: E000, E00, E11  Nail: R46  Bangles: Y17, Y21, Y38, E35, E37
