I used my alcohol inks to make this background! I was inspired by this card although I ended up making two alcohol ink panels, one with reds and pinks, and the other with blues and greens, and then die-cut both panels and paper-pieced. I love the bright, vibrant colours!
For the sleepy kitty, I kept the colouring to a minimum so it wouldn't compete with the vibrant background. Instead I doodled a checked pattern on her hat and mitten and added dots to the polka dot area. I adhered the kitty with foam tape on a vellum snowflake die-cut. The sentiment was heat-embossed in white on a black scrap. I finished off the card by adding gems and snowflake sequins.
