I found a new challenge to me on my travels called the Sisterhood of Crafters. Their challenge at the moment is to use newly acquired stash.  I was lucky enough to get some Visible Image stamps for Christmas and decided to have another play with the Curious Cats stamp.

I started off by creating a background with Tim Holtz distress inks in lots of different orange and yellow colours for my newly adopted cat Amber. I inked the stamp in Hero Arts intense black and coloured in the eyes with a green pen and added Glossy Accents to the eyes and the nose to give it a sparkle. I sponged around the edges in Black Soot.

I added it to a piece of grey card stock and sponged around the edges with some of the same orange colours - I added the sentiment and some paw prints.  I then layered this onto a lovely piece of gold coloured shiny card stock.

I'm also adding this into the following challenges:

Make My Monday - Fairytale - Puss in Boots was always one of my favourites
Try It On Tuesday - Colourful Grunge
Craft Stamper - Anything Goes

Top picks please add this to your blog

OMGosh... this card is wonderful! Love the eyes! What character it gives the mischevious kitty. The distress sponging is wonderful and the sentiment is absolutely perfect! Thanks so much for sharing it with the Sisterhood of Crafters "newly acquired stash" this week!
