I love all things that can fly - birds, butterflies, fairies, etc - so this Lost Coast Event was right up my creative alley. Being a cat lover as well makes it a perfect match.
I created this square 4 X 4 card for this event using the Party Cat stamp (www.lost-coast-designs.com/party.html) and one of the new clear phrase stamps at Carmen's Veranda (carmensveranda.com/clear.html).
I stamped my kitty with black ink onto white paper and cut her out. I gave her blue eyes and added a bit of pink marker to the tip of her nose and the inside of her ears. I cut out the party hat she comes with and traced that shape onto some dark blue scripted paper, cut it out, and gave her a new party hat. The butterfly wings are from a collage sheet I had on hand, so I fastened those on, and she's ready to fly!
My background is four different torn strips of paper - two are from some decorative paper I had on hand and two are from background papers I had created. I attached them all in a horizontal fashion, torn edges up, and edged the border with blue Distress Ink. Kitty goes on atop those. I stamped "Muse" with black ink on white paper, cut it out closely around the letters, edged with black ink, and attached with a piece of foam tape to give it some dimension.
And my kitty is ready to Fly!!
