Krayzee Katz

The challenge this fortnight at I ❤️Promarkers is
 'Add a Ribbon'

and the sponsor for this challenge is IKEsART with $15 prize to spend in the store


For this card I have used an image I love and have used quite a few times, KRAYZEE KATZ, so much fun to colour especially on a day when I really did not feel like anything detailed.  The image was coloured with Promarkers, both alcohol and metallic and then fuzzy cut.  I then decided on a 'strong' background and opted for the burnt orange paper with added black trims.  Had a boo boo here, just when everything was going so well too hahahahaha.  I love the black die cut border and really don't use it enough so today it came out the packet to be played with, just a shame I did not engage my brain.  Grabbing some black paper I used a double sided glue sheet to line the back of the black paper which would make the laying down of the die on the card easier.  Sent it off through the die cutter and then set about trimming the edges expecting the lovely pattern without a border and not even thinking that without the border all the bits would fall out and the border would end up being just a bunch of loose shapes.  Oh I could kick myself for being such an idiot.  Well everything happens for a reason I guess and once I got over my hissy fit I weeded all the bits I did not need out of the die and replace the pieces I did want.  I then peeled off the backing of the sticking paper on the top piece and positioned it still in the die, on my card - perfect.  The process was repeated for each section and it was lovely and easy to line it up perfectly as the die slotted into position on the already placed sections.  Next I stamped my sentiment and cut it out using a tag die, attached it to the card and placed the cats in position.  Finally onto the bow and everything was done.  I just love the way this card has turned out so a happy bunny in the end :) :)
