Speedy's Challenge #4 Meoooow!!!!

Hi Everyone, I'm sneakin' in under the wire on this one! I made this for the 4th Speedy's Friends Challenge, we were to create a card or project with an animal on it!

I used the Siamese cat from the Speedy's Friends set. I also made this based on Faith's Original Coaster design. I loved this so much the day she posted it, that I went out & bought the materials (well my mirrors are round) and then never got around to making it!

I stamped my Kitty in versamark and then chocolate chip onto very vanilla and embossed in clear embossing powder. Then I sponged on Tim Holtz antique linen and vintage photo. The eyes are a copic BG05 and a bit of BG09.

The stand itself is 2 - 4" square coasters the front & back are covered with very vanilla, corners rounded and edges sponged in cool caribbean and tempting turquiose! The mats for the mirror were cut with circle and petite circle nesties.

The leaves were made with the sizzix leafy branch, and the flowers were made using the Rolled Flower technique. The flowers are very vanilla, edges sponged with cool caribbean and then I put a bit of Tim Holtz distress stickles on the edges.

Stamps: Speedy the Cat's Friends
Paper: very vanilla, chocolate chip, dp
Ink: versamark, chocolate chip, cool caribbean, tempting turquoise
Accessories: copics, sponges, nesties, sizzix leafy branch, distress stickles, dimensionals, jumbo eyelets, ribbon

Have a Great Day!
