Meow Like No One Is Listening

Hello and welcome! Happy Saturday! After a two-week challenge we are back to our normal weekly challenges at Allsorts and this week it's Lolo's turn to host. She selected the optional theme of "For the love of Animals" or you can go with our Anything Goes option too. We have a nice set of prizes from  Highlight Crafts and Stamp Addicts for challenges 773, 774 and 775 and winners will be announced on the last Friday in April and as always you may enter up to 3 times for more chances to win.

This challenge was the perfect opportunity for me to ink up the wonderful stamp set Bad Cats Club from Aall and Create and I combined it with a couple of other sets also by Aall and Create, Night Stalker (sentiment) and Blackbird (the numbers and birds).

This post may include some affiliate links, meaning I may earn a small commission if you purchase something through the links. As always, this is at no cost to you. Thank you so much for supporting this blog!

If you're in the US then you can purchase this set from Joggles. Unfortunately it appears sold out from the Aall and Create shop in the UK but maybe there are some other UK retailers that still stock it?  As mentioned above the sentiment is part of another cat themed set called Nightstalker and that one is also out of stock from Aall and Create. The number in pink and birds are from the set called Blackbird. The black numbers and circles are part of the stamp Wild and Free also by Aall and Create but sold out too.

This is a large stamp that fills up almost half of an A4 page so I made a larger than normal card. As I was looking for a stencil to use on this card I came across a homemade stencil I made some years ago for the Bokeh technqiue where I punched out several sizes of circles on acetate and I thought this would make a nice background for these "up to no good" cats :)  The sentiment was stamped on a snippet of cardstock and layered on a snippet of pink. I attached it with staples and then put some striped twine through the staples to tie a bow.

Striking use of colour Ellie with the pink stencil work bringing it all together and it's such a fun A&C image, confess I don't have any of the Cat ones by Dominic.

Fun and beautiful card ! I have three cats but hopefully they are not as naughty as the ones on your card. Love the delicate stencilled circles you've made to highlight this sweet image. Thanks so much for sharing and for playing at ATSM.
