"Cool" Cat

     I'm pleased to announce that I'm a Guest Designer this week at Eureka Stamps.  They have a sketch theme this week which is just so much fun to use!

and here's my card:

     I used my ProMarkers to color Joe Cool Cat, added a touch of white gel pen for reflection on the glasses, then used one of my newest stitched die sets (Die-namics) to cut him and the frame.  The image piece is inlaid into the frame.  The die cut strips are cut with a die from Spellbinders.  

     The sentiment was cut into a simple rectangle using my paper cutter.  Everything was layered onto dark blue CS and then adhered to the card base.  As an embellishment, I used black polka dot ribbon to make a bow tie for Joe Cool.  :-D


     Hope we see you playing along this week.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
