If the Broom Fits

Yogi here today and I'm using the technique Holly showed us a couple days ago "faux cross stitch" (with a couple variations/additions of course...) and using one of Suzanne's newest e-cut files from the Silhouette store and a Halloween stamp.

I side folded my white card, lay down a Crafter's Workshop 6 x 6 stencil "Window Screen" (my lines are at an angle rather than straight up and down) and then lay down the " 3 cats" Dreamweaver stencil (LM266). Temporarily taped them down. Stippled Color Box on the cats in various colors of browns, removed my stencils and clear embossed. Another variation - put the stencils back in place and applied Distress Black Soot, wiped the excess of the cats and removed the cat stencil, keeping the screen in place. Pounced some petal point chalk pads in two shades of blue. Removed the screen stencil. Outlined the design with a black Zig Writer.

Electronically cut the cat on broom from black cardstock. Applied Versamark on the broom section and embossed with Distress "Antique Linen" embossing powder. Applied Versamark on the cat and embossed with one of my dirty mixes of black and gold embossing powder. Added a small amber rhinestone for his eye and adhered to card.

Stamped the quote with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Hope you give it a try, it is fun.
