One of my craft gifts was a set of Snarky Cats and stencils from Tim Holtz.  I'm joining in with the challenge over at Make My Monday - they've asked us to choose our favourite theme from last year - what a great challenge - I ended up doing two challenges in one - Friendship from September and Washi Tape from April.

I started my card off with the stencil that looked like string all tangled up.  I used three Distress Oxide Colours Peacock Feathers, Rusty Hinge and Saltwater Taffy to create the background.  I stamped the cat on top and coloured him in with some Rusty Hinge Distress Ink and some Luminarte paint for his eyes.  There is a touch of Spectrum Noir glitter pen on the ball of wool and through the string.

I added some touches of Washi tape from Aallandcreate - I like to tear little bits off the tape and use it just here and there.  This tape had the same blues I'd used which was a bonus.

I added the quirky sentiment with Versafine Clair ink in Warm Breeze - now who should I give this card to? lol! It will most probably go as a RAK card on my Facebook Group the Joy of Sets.  RAK stands for Random Act of Kindness and we send cards we make out to each other -it's lovely as a crafter to receive as well as give.

I'm also adding this into the following:

Just Add Ink - Favourite - cats are my favourite animals 
As you like it - favourite reason to send a card - as mentioned above as a RAK for my group members 
The sisterhood of crafters - something new - my stamps and stencil

That sentiment definitely made me laugh Fiona, love how it is tucked in with the fragments of washi tape. It is a perfect match to that snarky cat. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week. Kim
