1510 Fashion Kitty ~ A Sandra Caldwell New Release

Hi everyone! It's New Release Friday at Sandra Caldwell's Etsy shop, Babycakes Digis and Designs and she has some dandy images for us again this week. The Design Team has done their usual fabulous job creating projects with some of them but Sandra always has a few surprises for us, too. This week, I chose to play with the new image called 1510 Fashion Kitty.

I coloured Fashion Kitty with a mix of Polychromos and Prismacolor pencils. She was fussy cut leaving a narrow white border and then matted with black card stock. Once she was fussy cut a second time leaving a narrow black border, she was popped up with foam tape to give added dimension.

The card background was cut from designer paper and then a band created from a scrap of paper left from another background I had created was added behind the kitty. This band was also matted with black. Faux stitching was doodled along the long edges and also around the edge of the designer paper. To help the image stand out from the busy background and also add a feminine touch, part of a doily was added behind her.

The lettering was added with black glittery stickers and three large pearls were adhered to the top right corner to complete the design. The background was matted with black card stock to frame the design before it was adhered to the white card base.

Thanks for joining 1510 Fashion Kitty and me today. We're always happy when you stop by. To see more of Sandra's wonderful new releases, all of which will be in the shop later today, and also to see what our talented DT members did with them, be sure to drop by Sandra Caldwell Stamp Fans Facebook group, where they will be posted throughout the day. Pop by Sandra's Etsy shop, too, when you get a chance. There are so many fabulous images that you are sure to see some "Must-Haves". I know I always do!

Life is good; so is art.
