Sittn' Pretty

Hi Everyone!

We are featuring this adorable stamp called  "Sittn' Pretty" (#2607W) at Repeat Impressions this week.  How CUTE is this guy?  He's just waiting to be part of your collection and for this week only "Sittn' Pretty"  is available at 50% off to Blog Readers at Repeat Impressions.  Just head on over to The House that Stamps Built Blog, grab the code and he'll be on his way to your craft space and stamp collection.  

This tabby reminded me of "Kitty Boy", a cat my husband had when I met him.  (Kitty Boy was 22 years old when we had to put him to sleep 2 years ago.  And what a character he was!  We've got Kitty Boy stories you wouldn't believe! We still miss the old guy.)
I placed "Sittn' Pretty" in front of a fence I created using a CB EF and just free hand cut the pickets.  I colored it with a technique called "Chalked Embossed" that I found in the Dec 2011/Jan 2012 issue of TJN (Technique Junkies Newsletter).  I love how it turned out.

The clouds were stamped direct to paper with Colorbox "Frost White" pigment ink, let dry then stamped the sentiment.  Both the cloud (#5105) and the sentiment stamp (#8114) are also Repeat Impression Stamps

Be sure to check out the other Rock Stars blogs and get more inspiration.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
