MEOW!



I'm Lovin' my Pink Cat Studio Stamps! When I saw this sweet Santa Kitty, I thought that she would be Purrfect for a Kitty Treat Basket! The little bucket was one of my dollar store finds!

I had some different ideas about how to decorate the bucket, but settled on keeping it simple and embossing pawprints on the bucket. I was a little concerned that the heat gun might effect the paint, but all was good.

I stamped the paws in SU White Craft ink. I must tell you that this is a bit of a tedious process. You need to rock the stamp just enough to capture the full image, but not enough to make it blurry. On a slippery surface like this, you may have to wipe off a few times and start over, but with patience you can do it! I embossed the paws in silver, but then found it to be a little bland, so in stages, I sprinkled embossing powder here and there around the prints and heat embossed until I got the splattered effect that was pleasing to my eye.




To complete the tag, I used a Sizzix Tag Set die cut. I stamped the pretty kitty right onto confettie white paper, coloured with copic markers and used a little SU old olive pastel to add the green around the eyes. I took a black Gel pen to darken the pupils and a white gel pen to add highligts to the eyes and pastelled cheeks. I then applied liquid glue pen to the "fur" areas and added SU! Chunky Glitter.

I then curled some red wire around a Q-tip, of which I cut off one end and used it to attach the tag to the pail handle.

I really like how this project turned out. Although the embossing was a little difficult, basically the project worked up quickly. Now just to find a pretty Kitty who would appreciate my gift!
