* Cat Lovers Hop: Cats on a Branch



Hello!

Have you heard? 
It's the Cat Lovers Hop hosted by Janis at Her Peaceful Garden.
This year is the fifth hop and it's a crazy week filled with crafting, commenting and celebrating cats of all sizes. There are fabulous sponsors and prizes to be won, but best of all, friendships to be forged with like minded cat lovers from around the world. Why don't you come and join us?

Here is my second card:


The card was inked with Distress Oxides in Antique Linen, Spiced Pumpkin, Vintage Photo and Worn Lipstick. I splattered some water droplets to bleach out some colour and blotted with a paper towel. I created a moon using a die cut circle, and hills using a torn piece of paper, by blending ink around the paper. I made a bit of a botched job with the blue around the moon, forgetting to blend the sponge off on spare card before adding it to the background.
I used a super, polymer, silhouette stamp from Inkylicious Stamps called Cats on a Branch, and made sure my cat couple were inside the moon spotlight. Bare Branches were stamped along the left side of the card and along the top edge. The lovely sentiment was added in the bottom right corner.
I inked the edges of the background with black archival ink and matted first onto white card, then onto black and popped it onto a 6 x 6 inch  card base. 


That's all for now!
