Combining several challenges:
WT583 - Use Cat (or owl)
MMTPT407 - Mother's Love - feminine, soft colors, butterflies, thinking of you
MIX172 - Wallpaper inspiration - use two Medias - stamp with ink pad, watercolor with ink refills, and color directly with markers on image and along edge.
IC533 - Inspiration - Total Wall Covering
I was intrigued with the Mix Media Challenge to be inspired by wallpaper however I was unsure of a source. Then I remembered an Inspiration Challenge for a wallpaper website. I had always wanted to repeat that one, so I decided to use that as my groundwork. I had my Meow Meow stamp set already out and it was purrrfect for this one.
IC533 & MIX172- Wallpaper inspiration - see my choice here: http://totalwallcovering.com/p38505/...ns-border.aspx
I stamped & heat embossed one of the kitten images. Then I used a Circle Framelit as a template to lightly pencil a circle around the embossed kitten. I used the penciled circle as a guide to randomly stamped flowers in similar colors as the wallpaper. Afterwards, I gently erased the circle. Last but not least, I added some die-cut, embossed butterflies.
Thanks for looking!

What a fabulous frame round your sweet kitty, Diane. I thought at first maybe it was one of the Rubber Stamp Tapestry sets - well done for assembling such a great collection of diverse stamps to make such a beautiful frame.

This is just as sweet as can be and I love seeing the older SU sets used here! I Still have Bow Wow, which was the dog set at the time Meow Meow was current : ) I also LOVE the way you used the Watercolor Minis set to create your pretty wreath around your kitty image. Just a delightful card!
