Moon cat


Yes I made a Penny Black card using a very old stamp, I didn't even buy it new but from a second hand craft sale many years ago.

The glitter moon was a bit tricky, well not really but I had to layer the moon and the cats tail and then walk away for rest of the day while the silicone glue dried out so that when I used a wet glue like craft pva wouldn't buckle my moon.

Once that was done I then had to wait for the pva to dry before layering the rest of the cat. Patience apparently isn't my middle name!

The sketch is sort of Mojo Monday but they have the sketch on a landscape card which wouldn't fit my Simon Says Stamp Stitched fishtail banner so I turned it. Also I think I should have the light brown card to highlight the scallops of the stripy paper.

To finish I used Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes star, but I just wanted to add more and more and lets be honest less is more.

I'm having a quiet weekend maybe a bit of card making but no crops or craft shows, I have a really busy week coming up and I need to be rested before I take it on.

  8. I adore your sweet mooncat Debby and the layering is just perfect. The pretty blues with the light brown looks great and the star embellishments and baker's twine finish it beautifully. x
