Cool cats and Autumn


This is a combined post for my DT work at Stamping Sensations challenge and We Love Chocolate Baroque challenge.  Please scroll down to see my autumn card.

My DT make for Stamping Sensations challenge uses two stamps from Crafty Individuals. The theme is Animals, birds and bugs.  I used a background I had pulled from my gelli plate. I managed to position the stamp over areas to showcase the stamp to the best effect which meant I didn't need to do any colouring. I just put a little colour on the dots on the scarf and the smaller cat. Luckily I had another background with similar colours that I used for the smaller cats and sentiment. I just fussy cut around them, again no colouring.

Our sponsor this month is Stamp Addicts.

My DT card for We Love Chocolate Baroque challenge and the theme of Anything Autumn. I've gone with the colours of autumn by designing a background paper in my procreate app on the ipad. I then printed it out and stamped over it using Using Chocolate Baroque Artists Baubles and clear embossing powder. I cut two circles from the Phill Martin debossed circle set using rose gold mirri and placed them over the printed and stamped area. I used a really old spellbinder die for the corners and the inner from a sentiment die with Words to Dazzle and Sparkle for the sentiment.

As always we are pleased that Chocolate Baroque provide our winners with prizes and they are shown on the blog.

I'm entering my second card into:-
Anything goes #70 challenge at CD Sunday Plus as I used my ipad and procreate app to digitally create and then print the background.

The CI cats are such fun and I like the idea leaving them uncoloured with the print background. Your CB creation fascinates me, the focal circle element looks are though it should in a museum, something ancient about it.

Love both these cards, both are very unique and clever. Wonderful gelli print background on the first and how amazing that you created your own background on procreate. I am always very envious of people who can use digital drawing software. I am trying to learn on fresco at the moment and getting nowhere fast! I have put that circle stamp on my wishlist, it is fabulous Wonderful framing too. Thanks for the inspiration xx
