Cat On A Post

 Hello Friends!

Just wanted to pop in and share a new Impression Obsession image by  Gary Robertson.

I stamped Cat On A Post H1942 with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copic Markers. I stamped it again and colored and cut out the butterfly and the cat to pop up on the post for added dimension.

 Copic Colors~ 
Flower~YG21-23-25-95, Y21-24-24

 Thinking Of You B9300 was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and embossed with imagine Crafts Clear Embossing Powder.

I added a green Border Duo 2 Set DIE018-V
and sponged the edges with Memento Bamboo Leaves.  Added a little embossing with a Sizzix Embossing Folder.  The edges of all the purple cardstock was sponged with Memento Lulu Lavender. It was finished off with some Mark Richards Nail Heads and black gingham ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!
