Morning all. Are you ready for a new Make My Monday Challenge. This time we want anything but a square card. This makes it a real change for me as square is my go to shape (with the occasional rectangle for variation). I wanted to move away from normal shapes altogether and go with something totally different. To make my card base I chose my largest sort of semi-circle die and stuck it to a card base before cutting around to get the card blank. I inked it up with worn lipstick and spun sugar distress inks and splattered it a bit with water. The cat stamp is a new one that I had to have when I saw it. It's a Laurel Burch design from Stampendous. I loved the images but I'm a bit intimidated by the bold colours she uses. The stamps came with a stencil so I added texture paste to my blank and used enchanted gold embossing powder over it. When you do it with texture paste it bubbles when you heat set it and I love the effect.
I have a crazy cat lady best friend and this will be going to her for her birthday. She loves red so that was my main colour choice.
It's not my usual style but I love how it turned out and I will be using the stamp set much more now I've coloured it once. Besides, I have a crazy cat lady mother in law with a birthday in February. She's gonna love this stamp set.
Please pop over and have a look at the DT Inspiration. There are some beautiful projects to inspire you.
Thanks for reading.
