Bob the Cat was Stirring...

 Hello and welcome back! I've been working on a lot of holiday cards to try to get ahead of the rush after Thanksgiving. Today I'm on the Topflight Stamps blog sharing this fun Bob the Cat card :)

First I stamped Bob the Cat with Versafine Ink on watercolor paper (I prefer Strathmore). I colored the image with Distress Watercolor Pencils and then fussy cut. When I'm in a hurry to color an image I like to use my water brushes for convenience.

I've been practicing using my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil system. I'm getting the technique down and even embracing slight imperfections, like this one. I still love the added shine! I used Spellbinders hot foil Duo Essentials Rectangle plate and gold foil.

I then die cut with my Sizzix Big Shot and Waffle Flowers A2 Lacy Layers die.

Next I heat embossed the fun sentiment with a stamp from Lawn Fawn 'A Creature was Stirring' and Hero Arts gold embossing powder. I used the smallest die in the Lawn Fawn Mini Slimline Stackables to die cut the sentiment... it ended up being the perfect length!

Now it's all ready to be put together! I tied a small bow with green twine and glued the panel to the card base.

Thanks for stopping by!
