Outlines - Meow!

Happy Monday!  This week's Outlines design team challenge is Furry Friends - use a cat or dog image.  For my card, I used Split Layering Collage-Meow (H-937) and Friends Fur-ever (B-1080).   I stamped my image twice and cut one apart to use for adding layers.  For the balls of yarn, I pierced holes through the image and actually pulled out a needle and some embroidery floss and sewed - egad!  I popped that layer up on foam tape, along with the Meow and paw print sections. 

I cut the cat and mouse bodies out and layered them with foam tape as well.  The gold pearls were created with my Viva Decor Pearl Paint Pen.  Everything was colored using Copic markers and the patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Honey Pie collection.  The paw print and meow brads on the sentiment panel are from Around the Block.

Here is a closeup shot of the various layers (click on the photo for a larger view).  I used this week's Color Throwdown colors (So Saffron, Pretty in Pink/Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip) for my color scheme.  Please be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created for this challenge:

Bev Gerard - Savor the Journey
Jeanne Streiff - Inky Paws
Jenny Gropp - One Krafty Kat
Lisa Silver - Silver Stamping
Vicki Garrett - Summerthyme Studio
