Oh Christmas Tree!
Whoa I've been crafting BIG time, but I'm way behind on blogging. You're gonna see at least 3 posts today. Two for DT's (so please come back) but first I've got this cutie from Sandra Caldwell called #97 Cat in the Christmas Tree. Fortunately my kitties pretty much leave our trees alone, but Jezebel did fancy the faux palm in the dining room when she was a kitten.
I chose the paper first and colored the image accordingly with Copics and added stickle shine to the lights and tiny acrylic bubbles to the ornaments. (Hey, I was in a hurry and my Diamond Glaze and Glossy Accents take too long to dry.) I used a Spellbinders nested Christmas Trees to cut out the digi (amazingly the right size for the largest one) and added two more in solid to give the illusion of the tree tipping. Then I put the digi on an Action Wobble so it actually DOES tip. I took a video, but I can't remember how to upload it, so you'll have to take my word for it.
Anyway, I used the sketch from the Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge for my inspiration and mounted it all on a Spellbinders Labels One with the corners punch with a paw print.
I'm also adding this to the DL.Art November Linky challenge, SUYP Cat's Only Furrything Goes, Crafty Hazelnuts Cute or Anything Christmas, Creatalicious ATG with Optional Sentiment , C.R.A.F.T Christmas, Allsorts Oh Christmas Tree and Simon Says Stamp Christmas Critters.
