Oh dear! It's been an entire month since I posted anything here. What the heck have I been doing? Well for one thing I've been acquiring dies, LOL. And this Sizzix Pop Up Die by Karen Burniston is a favorite of mine. This is my first serious attempt to create a card scene. Not much of a plan here, just my usual stream of consciousness type card.
I began with a base card stock from Club Scraps' Autumn Splendor collection. Long gone but I have just a few sheets of assorted prints and solids. But this print was the perfect base for a wood floor with its streaks of browns against a lighter brown background. The remaining printed papers, (with the exception of the table...Authentique) are from Basic Grey's Hey Girl 12x12 pad.
I gave the cat (Memory Box) stripes using a Copic Marker and the lamp base was embellished with a Pentel Sunburst gel pen....yes, one that actually works! The table, lamp, picture frame and rug are all cut out from Sizzix embossing folders created for this Pop Up die. I cut the two pillows and kitty cushion from scraps used in this card. I embellished the two pillows with flower patterns, using a black PITT pen so they looked a little more 3-D. And finally, a cute little bird on the lamp shade, exasperating the cat.
Thanks for looking!
