Meow Are You?

Today's card is another "using up stash" card - making use of an older Hot Off the Press printed card as the base.

The focal is a brad buddy from Hot Off the Press - but it's a brad buddy with a difference.  The cat was originally sort of an orange color -- which obviously wouldn't have looked good here!  I painted it cream and added pink for the mouth using enamel paints.  Then I took a fine-point permanent marker and colored the whiskers.  The eyes and nose are brads and I think they were already that color (I might have painted the nose, can't remember for sure).  The "Meow" is also a brad buddy, but it came that color so I didn't do anything extra to it.

The cat is matted onto a piece of pink vellum, then white, then black.  The white and pink were cut with a die from the Nellies Flower Multi Frame die set.  The "Are You?" is printed on a die cut from Spellbinders Fancy Tags set.  The embossed background is done with a Sizzix embossing folder.
