Glitter n Sparkle DT - Include Some Green / St. Patrick's Day

Hello, everyone.  A warm welcome to my newest followers - very nice to have you join me!  Today it's time for a new challenge over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog.  This week we would like to see your Include Some GreenSt. Patrick's Day creations.  You all know I love kitties -  just look at the sweet image I got to play with this week - how cute is this!  This adorable digi is from A Day for Daisies called A Lap Full of Kittens, and I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils.  A special thank-you to my friend Marion for the little white kitty mould - she made it for me!

Here are the other supplies used to make my card:
  • Dies:  Cat (Impression Obsession), Butterfly (Elizabeth), Leaves (Marianne Design, Sizzix)
  • Punches:  Flowers (EK Success)
  • Rubber stamp:  Sentiment (The Old Island Stamp Company)
  • Ribbon:  Lace (May Arts), Ribbon (Offray)
  • Marker:  Staedtler (for doodling faux stitching)
  • Patterned paper:  Unknown/unmarked from my stash
  • Pearls:  Ranger Liquid Pearls

I hope you can join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Include Some Green / St. Patrick's Day challenge.  We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs this week, thanks to our generous sponsors:

Darling card, KT! Love those little kitties - the sparkly ones, and that pretty white kitty in the corner - great dimension. My favorite part is that you colored the pretty image with prisma color pencils - I love using them, and only a true artist can pull off the shading in the way you have! Wonderful card! Now back to renos, KT. LOL hugs, de

~ginny said...

I really like the green and white polka dot paper and the fact that you used it to punch out the butterfly,paper pieced dress and flowers - carrying the paper theme throughout the design is very effective! I am also drawn to the details in your design such as the doodling around the edge and the black cat sitting on the focal image panel. Very nicely done! Thanks for taking the time to share your project & creativity with us!
