Pussy Cat ATC for Janis's Birthday!

Hello and thank you for visiting me - I really appreciate it!  Happy Birthday to Janis over at
Her Peaceful Garden.  Janis is having huge celebrations on her blog as its her 60th this year and this ATC is part of the celebrations.  Janis, it will be winging its way across the pond to you but it will be very late for your birthday - I am so sorry!


I cut the ATC out of watercolour card using Sizzix Bigz Die by Tim Holtz ATC and corners.  I coloured the ATC and the corners using Distress Oxides and water then when dry, I stencilled through some dry wall tape with one of the inks used for the background then stamped with IndigoBlu Collection Edition No 1. Bubbles stamp that came part of a set of stamps I was lucky enough to win recently.  The corners were glued on then I edged the ATC with a black alcohol marker.  The cat is from another IndigoBlu stamp set called Kevin's gang which I stamped in black Versafine and embossed with clear powder.  Coloured with Promarkers then added Glossy Accents to the spots and eyes and fussy cut out.  The words from the same stamp set were stamped on inked card, cut out then again edged with black marker.  Glued everything on and job done.  I love this cheeky cat - there are several more on the stamp set.

Once again 'Happy Birthday' to Janis and thank you for visiting.

Have a lovely day.  Take care.  Christine xxx
