OSAAT #171 - Fold It
One Stitch at a Time. The theme this week is Fold It so we need to see folds in your card or papers. I had to choose one of Jane's images - under Coosty Creations, over at Stitchybear Digital Outlet. I eventually chose the Purrfect Paper Pack and in it you get four papers and the image of the sleeping cat. I love cats and it was no hardship for me having to colour this one. I thought, at this point, you might want to see my cats so here they are. I have two tortoiseshell females, Casey is the black tortie and Gracie is the white one.
Check out the OSAAT challenge blog for details of the prizes.
I used a Joanna Sheen large square card blank and the orange card mat is from Papermill. I coloured the cat image with Promarkers and used a Spellbinders grand nestie to cut it out. I printed two of the papers, the same one, and after fixing the oval to the top of one sheet I concertina folded the second sheet and affixed it under the image. It looks to me as if the cat is lying on a blanket on a shelf (do you think?). I used a Darice embossing folder to emboss a strip of white card and I used Distress Ink to pick out the paws. I then cut out the smaller paws and added those to the panel down the left side. I added faux gems to the top right and bottom left of the paper. I bought these from JJD Cards at Bluewater Craft Fair last year.
