I’m a Crafty Cat!!

Good evening Bloggers!! I wanted to share some exciting news with you…I’m now a Crafty Cat!! A friend of mine and AMAZING artist and graphic designer, Cheri, has opened her own fabulous digi store Graphicat Designs. She has some awesome digi images and hilarious sentiments, and I’m now on her design team!!! I’m sooo excited to be a Crafty Cat, because as you all know, I’m not much of a card maker, but I’ve been really wanting to challenge myself and do something different, so for me, that’s making cards. And speaking of challenges, Cheri also has a monthly sketch challenge blog where you can play along and create your own card with her fabulous sketches!! So without further adieu, here’s July’s sketch: (there’s still lots of time to play along!!)

Here’s my card: Both the image and the sentiment are from Graphicat Designs. I just love the witch in the martini glass!!


Here's some close ups:


I used Glossy Accents over the sentiment to shine it up a bit ;)

Here's what I learned:
You can make really cute flowers with used dryer sheets, a little glimmer mist, stickles and a brad or some kind of center! aren’t these great?! I made these ones black in keeping with my theme, but the possibilities are endless!! and they’re super easy! I’ll post a tuturial later!

Pumice Stone Distress Stickles looks quite a lot like salt on the martini glass, but glossy accents doesn’t quite measure up for creating bubbles…I think maybe if I added something to the glossy accents before it was dry, they would show up more.
The sentiments print very easily on patterned paper, just make sure you have a laser printer if you’re coloring with Copics!

I’m pretty happy with how this card turned out! It really helped to have such a fabulous sketch!! So don’t forget to play along at Graphicat Sketches and you can win some of Cheri’s fabulous digis!!

supplies used: Pattern Paper: Websters Pages and Fancy Pants Designs, Trim: Webster’s Pages, Markers: Copics, Distress and regular Stickles, Glossy Accents, Score Tape, MME brads,Ranger Industries Distress Ink, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Bounce Dryer Sheets.

Thank you so much for stopping by and for all your comments! I cherish each and every one of them!!
