Continuing with the New Years Resolution of altering a playing card for a weekly craft project, I present to you the distinguished and honorable Mister Meow Meow and his esteemed colleague Tweets McGee. They were my inspiration this week. Actually, Mister Meow Meow reminds me of my cat, Ginger, who inspired me this week to create. The card altered this week was the 9 of diamonds.
The bright background was mixed media paper sprayed with Dylusions Ink, adhered to the card front and cut to size. Mister Meow Meow (Stampers Anonymous- Brett Weldele) was stamped using Jet Black Archival Ink and his coat water colored using Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.
Tim Holtz' Harlequin stencil was used to create the tile flooring. The medium used was Imagine Crafts' Iridescent Turquoise with Distress Marker in Peacock Feathers applied after drying. Stickles in Aqua was added to the stencil as shown.
The top right corner was a spatter of Distress Stain in Picket Fence. A row of hearts from the Zombie Casanova stamp set was used on the vertical left side of the card with more Picket Fence. Stickles was added to Tweets McGee and Glossy Accents to Meow Meow's eye glass. Tim Holtz' marker spritzer was used with Picket Fence marker to create mists randomly on the card.
Distress Inks were applied along the edges and the altered card was complete.
For those of you that are regular readers of my blog, you may have realized that I missed last week's inspiration. I have not been feeling well lately and did not go into my craft room last weekend and most of this week. But, I will make another altered card to make up for missing last week.
The really sweet blogger Carole Robb Bisson asked me how my resolutions were going this year. I had a lot of resolutions (as always!) and I have not been doing too bad:
- One Pepsi per week. I have only had three this year. Yay!
- Downsizing- 15 items per month have to get out of the house every month: we brought 3 or 4 boxes to a local charity this month and I already have 7 items for next month.
- Save more money (a specific goal in mind): doing well with this one, too!
- Two Christmas cards per month: Well, this one is a bust as I have created zero this month. Perhaps it is the "burnout" of making so many the last few months of 2015.
Have a happy crafty weekend!
