Squigglefly Rewind

Coffee of the Day - Creme Brulee

Today is a fun day at Squigglefly. Various designers are taking some of the older images and using them on new craft items! how cool is that!?!

I chose this neat digi from Angie Davis called Chair Cat. It has long been one of my faves. Probably because I have always been a cat freak. I decided to use some of this wonderful paper that my friend Kate, the owner of i {heart} papers, sent to me when she heard about my craft room fiasco. what doesn't show in the crooked scan (sorry about that!) is that the paper is both shiny and flocked. so pretty irl! I added texture to the kitty by stippling on ink with a dry paint brush. I then used a silver glitter gel pen to go over the lines of the chair to give a bit more sparkle. man oh man, I would love to have a set of these gorgeous chairs! The buttons are all vintage. I sprayed the prima flower with walnut gold glimmer mist to help age it just a bit, but also to help give it a touch of shine to match everything else.

Be sure to check out other DT members' blogs to see what they are showcasing today! and check back tomorrow for the start of the Create It Green Earth Day Blog Hop!

Sweet card Jenn! How nice of Kate to send you some papers! The paper on this is just beautiful and I can imagine in real life the texture it gives! I love your touch of sparkle to the chair and the lace and buttons finish everything beautifully!
