Purrfect cat

Hi, I was inspired by a few challenges to make this card. The card colour is sort of a teal like peacock feathers but the photo has come out more blue.

The challenge at Just Add Ink is to use chipboard.

This cat is a Scrapmatts product I bought at a craft show last year. It was in a pack of 6. (I've used one before on a similar tag, the cat was black, the tag was purple and the flowers were coral.)
I used pumicestone and black soot distress ink to colour this one and used a wink of stella pen over the top for some shimmer.
I used peacock feathers and black soot to highlight the embossing on the tag.

At Less is More the theme is animal.

At Addicted to Stamps & More the theme is Clean & Simple.

At Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge it's an anything goes theme.

Materials used:
Scrapmatts chipboard cat; distress inks; wink of stella pen; Kaszazz vine edge embossing folder;
Technique Tuesday sentiment stamp; silver  ink and embossing powder; EK success & Punch Bunch flower punches; teal cardstock; home made tag.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

What a purrfect combination of sentiment and pussy cat Cathy. The natural colour of the cat contrast wonderfully with the gorgeous teal background. Thanks for joining us at Just add Ink this week.

This tag is wonderful! I really love everything about it, especially that gorgeous teal color! I thought it was so clever of you to add design and embellishment around just the edge and bottom of the tag instead of around the whole thing. It creates a really beautiful effect. I also like how you made the flowers dimensional and made the cute sentiment in white. It all blends together so perfectly and I really enjoyed seeing your post. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

Your tag is so cute. I love the color and the kitty. What is so great is the embossing down the side of the tag. That really sets it off. Cute little bling on his collar.

This is a really gorgeous teal blue colour Cathy, and the cat stands out beautifully in the pumice, and such cute little flowers and sentiment which stand out from the background. A lovely tag. x
