What’s New Pussycat


My 4 new goodies came on Friday from Crafts U Love, used the Vintage Tag on the last card but like a kid I wanted to use everything at once so the cat, lamp post and flower all went on this card.

Let’s Try Vintage is the theme over at My Partner in Crafting Crime and as you all know I adore getting inkie and dusty with all that sanding of the edges and then inking with the TH stuff. Stamped the cracked image onto the background core card, then went mad and did the window shutters flowers and cat. The lamp post was put through a Cuttlebug embossing folder, inked and sanded. Pretty doily flower also distressed but the second flower is ripped up newspaper sprayed with glimmer mists.

The Shabby Tea Room’s challenge this week is Old Meets New …. well new is the dies and old is definitely the lace which was given to me by a friend …. (only use it sparingly on my cards because it is beautiful) ….and the window die.

Simon Says Stamp and show your layers – Me thinks there are lots of layers on this.

One more goodie to show you watch out for the next card.

Hope you all enjoy visiting.
