Kitten Stack

     I've been seeing images from Sasayaki Glitter around the blogs I visit regularly and finally joined their FB site, then went on a shopping spree at the Etsy store.  Of course, I found kittens and had to have them so they went into making my first card with a Sasayaki image.  :-D


    I colored the image with my ProMarkers and then cut it with a Cheery Lynn die.  I added golden backing paper to show through the frame.  I corner punched a rectangle, and set it behind the image at an angle.

     I knew I wanted the kittens to take center stage so planned a very CAS design.  But then there were those scraps of dp that matched up with the kitten's stripes and called out to be used plus bits of lace which tied in with the fall colors.  I was really concerned that I'd lose the simplicity but when I layered it all together, the kittens still jumped off the page and there seemed to be lots of open space so I just went with it.  In any case, it does fit with the style I love to create - something simple which looks more complex because of fancy die cut frames.  What other excuse do I have to keep using all my fancy framing dies?   :-D
