Tail of Two Kitties (Knitty Kitty DT)

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing an anniversary card for my Knitty Kitty Digis Design Team project!  I'm still super excited to be working with the adorable Knitty Kitty Digis!  This sweet image is called Tail of Two Kitties.  If it looks familiar, that's because I made a card with it earlier this month. I am so in love with this image that I couldn't let it go!  When I made my first card here, I had another card in mind and I finally had a chance to make it.


I started by white heat-embossing a number of stars (Newton's Nook) all over the sky. Then I masked the entire image so I could create an ink-blended sky with Chipped Sapphire, Evergreen Bough, and Wilted Violet Distress Inks. To add texture, I splashed some water droplets onto the sky. I love how it turned out!


Next I peeled off the masking fluid and coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils.  I fussy-cut the two kitties so I could pop them up with foam tape. You will notice the image contains just a partial brick wall so I drew the rest of the wall by hand. I die-cut the coloured image with a Nellie's Multiframe Circle and mounted it on a die-cut stitched circle from My Creative Time.

Tail of Two Kitties

My colour combo was inspired by Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge, where the theme is G for Grape and/ or G for Glitter - I went with both! I added two sparkly butterflies! The patterned paper is from Forever in Time and I added a number of flowers from my stash (the beautiful bling flower came from Flourish with a Bling - thank you, Lucy!).  The die-cut leaves are Cheery Lynn Flourish Leaf Strip. The sentiment is an older wood-mounted stamp from A Muse Artstamps and I heat-embossed it in white and hand-cut into a banner shape. To finish off the card, I added two buttons and a "Made with Love" heart charm.
