Hello I'm back with my second post today as it's also time for my fortnightly Wednesday blogged design team make for Visible Image. I'm delighted to be sharing my first make using stamps from the new Visible Image release using the fantastic "That Lovin' feline"cat stamp set. Not only are the cat images wonderful but the sentiments are hilarious... and don't miss the little bird, paw print, hearts and mouse stamps too. Just take a look at all the stamps and sentiments you get in the set;
I teamed them with the awesome Heart Ink stencil.
(This stencil also come with the heart mask)
Unless you have been loving under a rock you will know that there are 6 fab new stamp sets and 6 new stencils in their February release. They have taken the crafting world by storm and are being released on 10th February. Pre orders are open on the website now and they are selling really fast so if you want to guarantee to get your hands on these when they are first released don't delay pre ordering here.
This is what I got up to with these hilarious cats....I had to keep an eye on them as they were playing aorund with my own Billy cat!
First I made my background using these pink shades of distress ink stain spays;
and cut my card front down to a 5 1/2" square. I stamped the 2 tall cats from "That Lovin' feline"
onto the heart as shown below and also onto white card
I coloured the pair stamped on white card using my Zig watercolour pens. I used pink and gold glitter pens for their eyes and noses and then cut the images out. I used my own sweet Billy Cat as my inspiration. Any cats I colour need to have pink noses and a white tip of the tail..just like my sweet boy.
After I took this photo I also cut off their whiskers (don't worry it didn't hurt) as they will reappear once stuck onto the 2 outline cats on the heart.
I repeat stamped the paw prints and mouse around the edge of the heart.
I then adhered the cats in place (you can see that their whiskers reappeared). I used the little heart stamp too, see below. I stamped the sentiment onto a strip of white card and distressed the edges with worn lipstick distress ink.
I also added some silver pen details to the mice and the hearts. Finally I matted my card onto black and then onto a white square card blank.
Here is my finished card

and one final shot;
As you probably know I adore cats...My sweet Billy has always been the avatar of my blog, Jane's Journal. I can't stop colouring up these fab cat images and have so many ideas using them. This is one which was shared last week and you can see it over in my Instagram account here.
