TSSC8 & AFSS8 - Naughty Fluffles!


Here's another card using MJ's Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge #8 (TSSC8). I also incorporated Allison's Suggestive Sunday for this week (AFSS8) - which was kitty stamps! Fluffles is my favorite kitty, although there are many great ones out there. I even have a TAC set that is realistic kitties. But for this one I reached for Fluffles.
I had this color combo in my head, but I wanted to use designer paper for the left hand layer. Well, the only DP I could find in grey in my ENTIRE STASH was this winter one - if you can belive that {I know!?!?!}. So then I had to get out my only winter Fluffles (I was hoping to use the Ladybug Fluffles in honor of Spring)...and it all went from there. I'm not thrilled with this one - probably due in part to the winter theme, LOL. It is 46 degrees today though so I shouldn't complain.
Really straightforward card. I colored the image {stamped on Poison Ivory shimmery cardstock with StazOn Stone Grey} with Prismacolor markers and Glaze pens. I added glitter to the red parts of the stocking and the berries. The cheers stamp is from A*Muse. The dark red cardstock {it is darker than "Real Red"} is from Archiver's.
Now try to be good....you don't want to end up like Fluffles this year!

I think this is adorable! I love it, even though I too am ready for spring, but this card is great in any weather! Thanks for playing again, lol.
