Musical Cats

Hello, everyone.  Today I have created a little scene.  These old alley cats are singing their hearts out and having a grand time. 

This cute image is called Cats Calling from QKR Stampede, and I coloured it with pencils and then fussy-cut.  The digital sentiment is a freebie from Create with TLC (thank you, Paulette), which I circle-punched and sponged with black ink.  I began my card by covering a white card base, two thirds with glittery black specialty paper and the remainder with shimmery grey specialty paper.  I added a die-cut city skyline in rust and rust-coloured ribbon and bow.  I affixed the image and sentiment to the card with foam tape.  I stamped a moon in black on yellow cardstock, fussy-cut, and affixed to the card.  Lastly I embellished with two gold music notes from my stash.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Digi stamp and sentiment:  Described above
  • Stamp:  Moon (Stamp Oasis)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Coloured pencils:  Stampin' Up! and Faber Castell
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Specialty paper:  Memory Star
  • Die:  Die-namics Skyline Border
  • Punch:  Circle (Marvy Uchida)
  • Ribbon:  Dollarama
