The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your creative makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

Please pop by to see what Karolina and the Design Team have made, awesome creations!!! 

I made a trio of Andy Warhol inspired kitty cards using a Darkroom Door Sitting Cat Cling Stamp and a Small Circles Stencil



For the red one I coloured the cat and background using  Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink. After stencilling the background using the Small Circles Stencil I then used a Tim Holtz Dot Fade Stencil, White Embossing Paste and a sprinkling of Prisma Glitter to add sparkle 


I added a couple of strips of Washi Tape, stitched around the edges, added a cat inspired Snarky Sentiment and finished the inside too ;-) 



For the white version I  simply used the stencil to emboss the design, leaving the stencil in place I used a Good Reading Background Stamp and a Smoke Ink Pad to stamp through the holes. 


 I used a Light Green Zig Marker to add a touch of green to their eyes 


 For the blue version I used and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink




Thanks for looking!
