Whimsical and Wild Cat Card


Hello crafty friends. Spellbinders provided me  with a wonderful opportunity to showcase Jane Davenport's new Whimsical  and Wild collection.  This collection, and especially the stamp used  today, speaks to my heart because I adore cats of all sizes -even the wild  ones.  


My cards today use the Best Leopard Clear  Stamp Set from Whimsical and Wild and the background on one card  using Richelieu Square Dies from Flourished Fretwork by Becca Feeken, also  a new collection.

I have two cards created using the Best Leopard  stamp.  The black card was stamped on watercolor paper and colored with  watercolor paints.  My set of watercolor paints is very basic but still  quite fun.

 

After coloring and cutting out the image I  mounted onto foam for dimension.  My paper choice is Graphic 45 -Farmhouse Collection -Paper Pad, which made for a perfect blend.  I love  how the cat seems to rise out of the colored flowers.

 

Both cards today have also been embellished  using sequin accents from Buttons Galore (Metallic Shaker Mix sequins).

 

TIP for Picking up sequins: If you want a reliable and easy way to pick up small sequins, beads, and  crystals, I have the "triple threat".  Haaaaaaa - this includes  glue that dries clear, is sticky and has a small applicator tip allowing for  the tiniest drop of glue - the applicator that effortlessly picks up sequins  and beads, and of course the sequins and beads.

 

The three products below have made me a super  happy sequin person.

The background of the  yellow card was made with Richelieu Square Dies  Flourished Fretwork by Becca Feeken.  It's beautiful and makes a wonderful  backdrop for the leopard.

I stamped the image on specialty stamping  paper using the Misti stamping tool (can't live without) and Spellbinders/FSJ's Cocoa Powder Ink Pad. I love this ink because it has a rich warmth and great coverage.
