Pawsitively Purrrfect!

Aloha once again,

How are you today?  Week already over, new one beginning...and half of another year soon flies by. But the glass if half full!!!!!

Do you believe I watercolored with distress markers? Me neither! Usually it turns out into a blotchy mess, but this time I hardly used any color.

The kitty cat is so funny - I rolled up twine to make a ball with fringes hanging from it, then covered it all with Dries Clear liquid adhesive. The wall paper pattern is just mini hearts made with barely touching the paint brush tips together twice per heart.

I think I'm about 20 challenges behind LOL. Was it humanly possible for me to play along in each VSN challenge this weekend? No, definitely not. But the old college try pushed me once again. This one is for Sally's Challenge Use Three Items From A Category Listed. I used 3 Techniques: Embossing, Die Cutting and Watercolor.

Stamp Set: "Pawsome" by Simon Says Stamp
Cardstock: GKD 120# White and Red Velvet, AC Orange; Strathmore Watercolor paper
Dies: "Painted Words" by SSS (Hello); SB Labels 11; SU Banner Framelit Dies; Marvy Uchida Scalloped Oval hand punch
Embossing Folders: Lifestyle Cuts "Tea Party," Darice "Cherry Blossoms," Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots"
Sew Easy "Red & White" Fancy Floss
PPP Yellow Sequins; Perfect Pearls Onyx Black (kitty's eyes and nose)
Distress Markers, Memento Rosebud Ink (edging image label and over the embossed banner)
Dries Clear Liquid Adhesive, Multi Matte Medium, Scor Tape, Signo White Gel Pen, Adhesive Foam
