The arrival of a new Simon says Stamp Stamptember Artsy Shapes stamp set came along the same time of an ordered parcel with Simon Says Stamp Encouraging Animals inside. It seemed only right to combine the two.
I have to thank my friend Anna who suggested to use the larger stamps as a banner it really does work a treat with a bit of Doodlebug Twine.
I stamped my cat twice so I could cut out the glasses and I didn't have the dies so I carefully cut the cat with a little border, practice makes perfect or so they say. When everything was in position I used Glossy Accents to make it look like glass in the glasses.
I'm pretty sure a sketch was used to inspire my layout of my card but can't work out whose, could be an old one. But I made a long banner using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Banner and used a sentiment that came with the Encouraging Animal stamp set.
The spotty paper came from Lawn Fawn Lets Polka in the dark and I used a bit of red to mat and layer to make it stand out.
