Cat on the Moon

Hello and welcome! It's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge. This time it's Lynn's week to host and she picked the optional theme of "I Love...". So we'd love to read about what you love but you may share all your new crafty creations for the anything goes option too to be entered into the prize drawing or to be selected for the Top 5.

I love.......... Cats, Penny Black Stamps, CAS cards and stenciling. 

I knew I was going to select a Penny Black cat stamp. I have a few to choose from and decided on this cute "Cat on the Moon" stamp. I masked part of the card off then used Chipped Sapphire ink for an inky strip. The stenciling was done using a Lavinia stencil and the same ink. I stamped the cat twice, once directly onto the card front and a second time on a snippet of Bristol Vellum paper. This I colored with Zig Clean color real brush markers and fussy cut, then used foam tape to add to the card.

I inked some scrap paper using Squeezed Lemonade oxide ink then used some star dies to cut them out (Avery Elle Star Frame die set and Whimsy Stamps Star die set, which is no longer available). The sentiment is from the Penny Black set So Very Much. Stickles glitter was applied to the  moon to make it sparkle. 

The challenge runs for one week and hope you'll join us! As a reminder, prizes are now announced just once a month but still selected from the weekly entries as before. This month's prizes come from WOWVOW, Craft Stash, AALL and Create and Ruth Hamilton Design.

Thanks so much for visiting!
