Outlines Rubber Stamp Challenge # 9

Hello!!!  It's Monday and time for a new Outlines Rubber Stamp design team challenge.  This week our challenge is all about our furry friends - anything using a cat or dog image.


Yep... this project is bright!  You might need to avert your eyes a bit.  Hah!  I picked Lime Rickey Basic Grey paper as my starting point.  Really, it was because I was determined to have an orange kitty.  My neighbor has a calico and he's the prettiest cat I've ever seen.  Of course, we love him as though he was our cat, so this was my motivation!

I used the cat and the skeins of yarn from the Split Layering Collage - Meow image for my focal image and pulled the sentiment from the other portion of the image.  It's a great way to use these images.  You don't have to use the entire thing for your projects, making them VERY versatile stamps to have in your collection.

A little detail you might not be able to see in the picture above is that I trimmed along the scallops of the patterned paper and layered along the bottom of the panel.  I gently bent the scallops upward for texture.

I'd love it if you stopped by to visit the other designers for more inspiration:
