Challenge 26: Cats

Hi everyone! Thankyou for taking part last week This week's theme is 'Cats' Use cat rubberstamps, your pet photos, stickers anything you can think of.
Our design team has been busy and made a few ideas for you below.

Congratulations to Alison you have won last weeks prize -2 rubber stamps by Printworks please email us at mytimetocraftchallenge@hotmail.co.uk and we will pop those in the post for you.

This week's Prize, supplied by Fat Freddie's Craft Shed - is a nature embossing stencil Everyone who takes part in this week's challenge by (Monday the 18th of August 10pm GMT) will be entered into a prize draw and one lucky person's name will be picked at random winning our prize!

This weeks challenge is dedicated to Kate's cat Poppy who passed away today.

Jo, Fifi, Lesley, Becky, Kate & Wendy

I stamped a cat image and water coloured it in, then matted it onto plain and patterened papers. I added a circular message and some flowers to finish it off.


Scrapbook Page
I made my page using a photo of Poppy, blue flowers, lace, buttons and blue and white cardstock

For my card I have used an image from a Tuscan Rose CD. This has been layered and mounted onto a background of Basic Grey paper that has been grunged up a little and stamped with Autumn Leaves Flourish stamps. Embellished with a photo corner, gems and a silk flower that has been folded and tucked under the corner of the topper.

I started by covering the inch card with paper then I stamped the cat and fish onto plain paper and cut them out! I went around the edges with a silver Krylon pen and wrote meow down the edge with a black pen. Two diamonds finish it off!!( no they aren't really diamonds!)

I paper pieced my cat with K & Co papers and defined areas with distress inks. I used matching K & Co papers for the background and added some Prima flowers for decoration.
