just a note to....

I found this technique whilst watching a Jenifer McGuire you tube video I stumbled across on a link from a link you get the idea . I don't have the dies she was using and actually can't remember which brand she used but I loved how her card turned out so decided to have a play and think its a technique I will be using over and over.
This card I made using a selection of poppy-stamps cat dies , I chose 3 different ones and cut 4 of each in white card and one of each in black glossy card.

I then simply glued them all together in stacks 4 white topped with one black so I ended up with 3 thick cats. I was going to colour the edges with black pen but decided I quite liked the white edge it sort of adds different dimension.

I decided to use the Tuesday morning sketches layout and that I would keep it monochrome too, I decided to add a just a note sentiment from Uniko as then I could use the card for a variety of occasions by adding whatever inside,it could be 'just a note' to wish you happy birthday, or to wish you get well, or to wish you good luck,or  to say hello. Endless possibilities and the cats could be equally for boy or girl of any age too although the colours I think might be a little more masculine.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;-

City crafter -Black and white

Show us your pussies - furrything goes

The male room - add texture

Jo's scrap shack - anything goes

HLS die challenge -anything goes

I love this simple design - you were right to keep the edges white - it really accentuates the fabulous dimension. Thanks for joining in at City Crafter.

Super cool and such a great technique. I did this one time on a canvas when I didn't have any of those lovely wooden 'swirls' that people use. :-)
Good idea to leave the white edges. An awesome project.
Thank you for coming over to play at SUYP Cats Challenges.
