Cat Lovers Hop: Day 2 - Kooky Cats



This year is the sixth Cat Lovers 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 are my cards for Day 2:

I adore these cats! I've had the stamp set for  quite a while and this is the first time I have used them. They are the 'Kooky Cats' designed by Kate Crane for Carabelle Studio.
I stamped onto smooth white card and coloured with Copic markers. I used a white Posca pen to add little dots and highlight lines. I then fussy cut them, leaving a thin white border.
The backgrounds are brayered PaperArtsy Fresco paints. I used Red Lipstick and Smoked Paprika for the left card and Captain Peacock and Aquamarine for the right one. Next I heat embossed the #210 Background Mash Up stamp from AALL & Create in white and inked the edges of the background card in black.
The Kooky Cats were adhered onto the background with some torn washi (#5 AALL & Create) to ground them. I also added other washi words to each card.
The backgrounds were matted onto black card.

Aren't the little wings sweet!
And what about this fishy jumper and ra-ra skirt - just gorgeous! :)

That's all for now!
