I don't know about you, but this bit between Christmas and New Year always leaves me scratching my head as to what day of the week it actually is, but the calendar says Saturday so it must be time for my DT post for Dies To Die For!
We are heading fast towards the New Year - wow, January, won't that feel strange?
Anyhoo, after the frantic rush of Christmas makes, what comes next but thanks you's.
So, this sweet (or not so sweet as modelled on Rosie) little kitty was made with a whole lot of My Favorite Things ingredients
I used the Split Chevron die to make a stencil - as the lines between the blocks are quite fine, I wanted to use something sturdy that would withstand me daubing about with ink, so I used one of the MFT backing sheets that comes in the packets, the one with the logo on, because it is thickish and has a nice shiny finish. I taped it over the card and gently sponged on Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress Inks to give that soft but worn look.
I stamped the kitty, masked him, and over stamped the sofa, and both are watercolour painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers). The rug was simply die-cut from patterned paper.
And that's it really, quite a simple looking card, but it did take me some time!
Whatever you are up to for your New Year celebrations, I hope you have fun
(just not too many fireworks please - Rosie is terrified)
Hugs to all
