A Purrfect Inspirational Card Sketch

Isn't She a Pretty Kitty?  She is the Cheshire Cat Digital Stamp from SpeschDigiStamps as soon as I saw her i had to get her, and a couple of other Digistamps inspired by Alice in Wonderland.

I made this card for this weeks Inspirational Card Sketches Challenge; it's a very nice Sketch to play with, and when i saw it this morning, I knew it would work well with my pretty kitty.

To create my background i used a piece of orange vellum in my new tiger print Sizzix embossing folder; i distressed it a little with sandpaper, and then coloured in alternate stripes with a brown promarker.  I trimmed this vellum to size and then ran it through my xyron to add adhesive to the back of it.  I then stuck it to my pearlescent white card blank.  Using a Cuttlebug embossing folder i embossed a scrap of the orange vellum, and then trimmed that and layered on white card to for the panel on my card.

I printed out my Pretty Cheshire Cat, coloured her with prismacolour pens and letraset promarkers.  I then cut her out, and added some shading to her with an orange and white prismacolour pencil.  I added foam pads to the head and body of the cat, to raise it from the card background, i glued her feet straight to the card panel.  To finish my card i added some buttons and flatback pearls.

I love this cat digistamp, and i'm sure i'll be using it a lot, she reminds me of the thundercats tehe!!
Thanks for visiting
