Hello, this is my card for this weeks Speedy The Cats Friends Challenge #7, this week we were challenged to make our own background paper. I also combined it with the colour challenge at SCS CC285, mellow moss, barely banana and real red.
I used 2 sets for this card, both from Mark's Finest Papers. My cardbase is chocolate chip, with a layer or real red. Then the bottom is mellow moss embossed with the distressed stripes EF. Then I dragged the creamy caramel ink pad across it to dirty up the raised edges and I sponged around the outside edges.
The top is barely banana stamped with the fern from the Ferns & Chickadees set in chocolate chip, and off stamped to fill in the back. I sponged the edges with barely banana.
The cute little kitty from the Speedy The Cat's Friends set, was stamped with memento rich cocoa onto watercolour paper. I honestly haven't used this technique in a long time, because of my addiction to copics, but this really fun!
I squeezed the close to cocoa and creamy caramel ink pads so I'd have ink on the inside of the lids, and used a paint brush to colour in the kitty. The shadow below is grey. He's playing with a little fern from the Ferns & Chickadees set.
The main image panel is popped up, and I added 3 micro brads to it and red ribbon.
