PB's Saturday Challenge

Over at PB's saturday challenge this week was to use black, white and one other colour. I absolutely love these types of challenges, colour restrictions. This week I used the colour red, its so vibrant and stands out from the page and brings everything to life.

Sorry about the lack of focus with regards to the card, don't know what's going wrong. I stamped the center image out and then masked up with swirls stamp. Cut out using nestabilities and inked the edges to give a soft colour. Wanted to emphasise the ladybird and used some clear glaze over her to make her look raised. Matted and layered up the paper, a few gems and of course a flower to bring a bit more life.

Images: Hedgehog & ladybird from Bubbly
Swirls from Rubbernecker stamps
Colours: Copics as above
paper, adhesive gems, flowers etc all from stash

Why is it that I always post at night? Well I don't get doing any craft until my youngest son is it bed and that's around 8pm.

Oh and for something a bit different, our we kitten Ben disappeared for a few months and reappeared last week. As he is a long haired cat he was all tats and I couldn't get cutting them out. So on Friday he went to the vest to get a snip and cut, and this is how he now looks.

Now stop laughing, he is not a happy little boy and always as getting his fur shaved of he also got neutered, so needless to say I'm not in his good books. Now when we got him from the vets she told us to put a coat on him and use sunblock, Trevor being Trevor he wanted to know what factor of sunblock to use, I don't know who laughed the most.
Hope this cheered you up a bit, will let you know how the fur grows and if I'm forgive :-)

Lovely card but poor cat! I once had long haired cat and the fur was awful to take care of. Never had to do such a thing you've done. Mine disappeared to forest long time ago;-( never came back. Can't have cat anymore, cause I would loose my husband thought;-))m
