Love Cat

Hello everyone, another day, another challenge-well 2 actually! My card is bright and sunny unlike today's weather which is really dull but al least it's not raining.
I'm entering this one in this week's Allsorts challenge which is Hearts and Flowers and also this week's challenge at Incy Wincy Designs which is called Colour Me Wonderful and you have to use your favourite colouring medium which in my case (as if you hadn't noticed!!!) is to use inks in various creative ways.

The image I've used is from Alison at Stretch 'n' Bubbles and as you can see, her shop has the most gorgeous whimsical images. She also has freebies on offer to her followers every so often so why not pop over and check out her shop. To me the greatest thing about digital stamps is that once you have them,  they can be resized and altered really easily to fit your particular project. I resized this one slightly and printed it out on both white and pink card.
I coloured the cat using my Millefiori technique (see sidebar for the technique labels) using pink and yellow inks. I cut out various parts of the pink image and adhered them on the floral cat. I then added a heart sticker.
For the background, I printed out the pretty daisy paper from the latest Polka Doodles Love & Cherish  CD and added some colour by sponging with the pink and yellow inks. I ran my pink panel and a yellow one through the Cuttlebug with the Floral Fantasy folder. I trimmed the edges of the yellow panel with scallop scissors and sponged on some deeper yellow ink.
The card was assembled as shown, with the addition of some ribbon, daisies and some Prima leaves. The greeting is from the Polka Doodles Back to Nature CD.

Certainly is a bright and sunny card Fliss, just adorable.

I keep telling myself Spring is round the corner, but somehow my imagination's not that good when I look out the window.

What a nice cute image))0 The cat is wonderful!!! Also it is great to make the nice cards if you have amount of flowers, good papers, lacy papers at yours. i am really envious the foreign ladies are so happy to be busy with their hobby as well. Here it is a problem to get good papers even, not saying about punches to make the lacy papers, etc. I am sorry...
And Felicity your works are so beautiful!!! ))))
