It's all about the Cattitude

I get to jump in for the first time on the TSG weekly challenge today!  And it's a fun one!  This week our challenge is brought to us by our featured Trendsetter - Angela!  She is challenging us to create a scene using our stamps.  One of the great things about TSG stamps is that many of the sets are designed to be used together for even more versatility in your stamping projects.  So get out those stamps and get inky because we can't wait to see what you create.

So I pulled together two fun TSG sets to create this little catty scene - Art is the Window and Cattitude


See, this sassy little cat all dressed in her finery is enjoying a sunny afternoon on the window sill.  She knows that brave little robin is sitting on the sill behind her and she's pretending she's ignoring him....but really she's not, she's just preparing her next move to nab him!  It's all about her cattitude!



I've colored this little scene with Copic Markers (here's the list of colors:  R27, R39, R59, R89, E25, E29, E33, W1, W3, W7, N6, C5).  I've added nailhead stickers as the shutter handles, and I've paper pieced the curtains with Memory Box's Spiceberry DSP.  You can see I've popped up the window sill, the cat and the bird.  



And above you can see that I've mimicked the ruffles on her sassy little outfit in the scallops along the bottom that I've fluffed up a little.  So fun!  I really enjoyed making this little scene!

So please join us on the fun!  To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a scene using stamps then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the Mr. Linky that is located at the bottom of this challenge post.

Way too adorable Christine, I just love your "cattatude" scene! Cats do have an attitude . . . but they are so adorable when their noses are notched up an inch or two . . . LOL!
