Sweet Stampin' Design Team - Anything But A Card

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Well it's Saturday and Sweet Stampintime - so I'm here to share my Design Team Challenge project with you. Our fab theme this week is 'Anything But A Card',  so for my project I decided to create a bookmark covered in cat...what could be better. The cats were randomly stamped onto watercolour card and coloured in with watercolour pens, then finished off with blending pencils. To add a little fun I added a dangling cat at the bottom.

Don't forgot to enter our challenge you must include a stamped element on your card/project, follow our theme and link back to the Sweet Stampin' blog for a chance to win a prize! 

Here's What I Did
I cut down a piece of watercolour card to 5.5cm x 21cm, and randomly stamped the cats and accessories from the set all over it using brown ink. Next I coloured everything in with Zig Clean Color watercolour pens including the extra climbing cat for the bottom. When everything was dry I added extra details using blending pencils and Zest It blending solution. The complete topper was matted onto some brown card sandwiching the Bakers Twine between the layers.

To complete the bookmark I added the climbing cat to the end of the Bakers Twine so he would dangle, and then added a  touch of glitter here and there.

Here's What I Used
Stamp Set: MFT 'Cool Cats'
Paper & Cardstock (CS): Watercolour Card, Neenah CS, Brown CS
Zig Clean Color Pens: Beige, Flesh Colour, Dark Brown, Light Gray, Colbat Blue, Bright Yellow, Yellow, Light Pink, Pink, Pale Green
Other: Spectrum Noir Pencils, Zest It, Brown Memento Ink, Glitter, Bakers Twine

It's gorgeous Janine... and I so love that fun dangly cat at the bottom too! Fabulous colouring of course, and a wonderfully clever design. It's a shame my Kindle doesn't need a bookmark... I had lots of lovely ones!
