Cat's Out

Time for another What If? Wednesday challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have an adorable inspiration photo for you:
There's so much in that photo to inspire you, the colors, the patterns, the kitty, the splats . . .  Here's how I was inspired:
 I tried a fun new (to me) water coloring technique using dye inks and my clear stamp blocks.  Then I watered down some ink and splatted it on the background.  I heat embossed the cat and balloons with white powder after I let the paper dry completely.  I masked the sentiment so only the top line stamped on my banner.  I masked it again to put the rest of the sentiment on the inside of the card.

Supplies:
Stamps: Repeat Impressions "5116 I. Cat Sitting Sil.", "2516 G. The Cat's Out . . ." and "5126 W. Balloom Sil. (sm)"
Dies: MFT "Blueptrints 13" stitched rectangle and banner"

Challenges:
Word Art Wednesday #221--anything goes with uplifting sentiment
The Paper Girls #99--rainbows
Little Miss Muffet #133--anything goes
Creative Knockouts #132--die cuts/punches
As You Like It--favorite style of embossing (I really like dry embossing, but I love the magic of heat embossing)
Eureka Stamps #184--anything goes
Craftin' Desert Divas--inspiration photo (I used the colors)

What an excellent inking on this card. I love it! Sorry for this delayed comment but just want to thank you for blessing us with this entry on our previous Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Hope to see you back in our new Challenge. Want to share a Word from the Lord found in 1 Samuel 2:9 and it says, "He will guard the feet of his faithful servants, but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness. "It is not by strength that one prevails." Have a blessed day!
