The inner beast

It's Ann here with a fun card made using a MFT stamp set called Fierce Friends!  Now, I'm not normally a cat person, so I do apologise if my treatment of these gorgeous cats is in some way not appropriate - I meant them no harm, I assure you.

The set contains just these three images, plus a palm tree, and three sentiments.  So once I'd stamped them onto blending card with Memento Tuxedo Black, I coloured them with Copics - C1, C2 and C5 plus E00 and E02.  Then I had a blank - I didn't want to create a scene this time, so finally decided on showing them through three 1.25" circles cut out of a coloured card stock panel and I left the images on a small white square to place behind the circles.  I did have to trim out paws or an ear to fit them in different poses.  The images were adhered to another panel, as I wanted (needed) the flexibility to move the cats around before finally sticking them down, and didn't want to spoil the actual card front.

I trimmed the coloured panel 0.7cm less than the width of the card, so that a strip of striped washi could show beneath - I like the contrast of black and white with colours.  At the same time, the sentiment was stamped and trimmed into a banner and adhered beneath the washi.  Finally, the whole panel was adhered to a white card 10.5 x 14.8cm.

 I thought you might like to see the inside of my card - this cutie is responsible for another of the sentiments - Roar!

I couldn't stop there and as I do have many friends who adore their cats, I made this card for a friend facing some serious health challenges.  This final sentiment is a beautifully encouraging one I feel.

I encourage you take a look at this stamp set - especially if you love cats, which I do now!

Thank you for visiting, and I hope you get to spend some crafty time too!
