This week's guest Muse is Leigh Penner. Her card is so fun! This week's CASology cue word is CAS (clean and simple). From Leigh's card, I focused on the central image with large sentiment, the frame (although mine turned into a mat), the little olive and the mostly neutral colours with bright red. From those, I got to this...
Leigh's central image made me think of using a journaling card or something similar. I have lots of different panels, just rarely think to use them. I found a pack of cat-related pieces that I've had forever, but never used. This cat seemed to have just the right expression and fit perfectly into the quote. He's coloured with Spectrum Noir markers, and his collar coated with Wink of Stella sparkle. His ears and nose got just one coat of Stella sparkle. Here, squint and pretend you can see it!
The silver glitter paper heart takes the place of the olive on Leigh's card. I would have liked to have cut a frame for the quote panel, but at 4"x4", my frame die cuts just weren't big enough. (This also meant my woodgrain texture plate was too small to use on the card base, so I couldn't take that from Leigh's card.) Instead I matted it on some textured shimmery black cardstock.
I think this card will be a perfect thank you card next time we need someone to cat-sit!
