"Cat's Meow" birthday card for my sister and The East Wind DT!

Howzit Everyone!
I'm extremely excited to announce that I'm now designing for The East Wind :0)
I adore Unky's digital stamps, especially her Lucy Loo line!  Here's my first project made for our new Challenge "Let 'er Rip - Torn edges/paper!  Plus, I'm also sharing a second TEW project today featuring the new release digi for this week too...see my next post!

You all know how much I love Alice in Wonderland and Cats and my sister loves kitties too so I made this card for her birthday....Happy Birthday Paula, love ya...mwah!

 This gorgeous kitty girl is called Lucy Loo 'Cheshire Cat' MAC0121


Stop by The East Wind Etsy store to snap her up and check out the entire collection while you're there!

I started out in Photoshop CS6 and added the "Happy Birthday" text to the signs on the tree and made my own sentiment and printed out the image twice onto Neenah solar white cardstock.  I coloured the cat and the signs with Copics and a touch of Prismacolor pencils on the first copy and the rest of the design on the 2nd.  The background was created using Copics and alcohol blending solution. 

 I fussy cut out the pieces, curved them to create a puffy 3D effect and layered them with pop dots to further enhance the dimension.  For the "Torn Edges/Paper" part of the challenge I trimmed the main panel by tearing it instead of cutting and grunged it up a bit with a bit of Tea Dye Distress Ink.  I also tore the patterned decorative teal paper (DCWV The Heirloom stack) and the red cardstock mats as well.  I love how she turned out :0)

Come and join the fun at The East Wind...we have fun challenges on our Facebook TEW Group and in Blogland too!


Happy Stamping!
