Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge # 212

Happy Wednesday everyone and welcome to a new week at Addicted to Stamps and More! This week we have the very popular theme:

This theme requires you to create a project where you have added colour to it in someway yourself i.e. water colouring, copics, crayons etc. This is always a fun challenge as the Gallery gets filled with amazing works of art!!

Our Sponsor this week is Happy Little Stampers and they are giving a $15 gift voucher to the winner. Talk about lucky!!!

For my card this week I went crazy with colouring, to the point where there is no white showing on my card (very rare for me I know!!!):

I love this cat image so much, probably because I can relate to his body shape and gluttony......

I started off by stamping the birds, cat, bowl and cat food tin on some white CS and coloured them with my pencils. They were then fussy cut out and put to the side. I then die-cut two rows of grass from some Simon Says Stamp green CS. After working out where the grass would sit, I used my mini-blending tool and Distress Ink 'Salty Ocean' to create the sky. I don't own any green Distress Ink so used my Waffle Flower 'Chirp Chirp' ink pad, these inks blend beautifully!!

I adhered the grass to the card and popped the birdies amongst it. I then put the cat on some foam tape and glued the bowl and tin beside him. All that was left to do was stamp the sentiment in black and it was finished!!

The grass die is from My Favourite Things, as well as the cat, bowl, tin and sentiment from 'Cool Cats'. The bird nearest the cat is from Die-Versions 'Cats Meow' and the other bird from Neat and Tangled 'Kitty's Favourite Things'.

You have until next Wednesday September 28th to link your projects to the Addicted to Stamps and More challenge and if you need any help with inspiration or ideas pop over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created for you. Looking forward to seeing what you've created in the Gallery!!

Take care


  1. Super duper sweet card teamie and awesome sentiment...hugs Ċ½eljka

  2. Are you body shaming yourself...shame on you. I'm sure you're slender and have a rocking body. Anyway, nothing close to this pudgy kitty. Such a cutie he is...I did notice he'd just finished his dinner. Too full to go after those birdies.This is really an adorable scene.

  3. How cute, Shona! Love your coloring on those kitty and chicks :)
