Head Over Heels In Love...

Hi my friends, I couldn't resist finishing off the Valentine's Day card making with a "head over heels in love" declaration from one of Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Snarky Cats. I also used Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Heart from the Love You More release and Tim Holtz/Sizzix Falling Hearts, Media Marks and Alphanumeric Tiny Type Lower Thinlits.
I began by trimming Distress Watercolor card to 4.3/4" x 6.3/4" and die-cut using Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Heart. I used Spun Sugar, Festive Berries and Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide inks, applied with blending brushes to create an ombre effect on the panel.
I die-cut a scrap of card using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Falling Hearts Thinlits to use as a stencil and applied Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink with a blending brush to the background and the rainbow section of the heart.
I inked the Snarky Cat with Black Soot Distress Archival ink and stamped on to the panel and a scrap of Distress Watercolor card and fussy cut.
I pieced the waste from the Rainbow Heart back in place and fixed the snarky cat to the panel popped up on Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive. I die-cut Simon Says Stamp Love Shadow from Distress Watercolour card and a scrap coloured with Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink and used Mini Foam Adhesive again to create dimension.
I fixed a Tim Holtz/Sizzix Self Adhesive Sheet to scraps of plain and coloured Distress Watercolor card, a Tim Holtz/Sizzix Sticky Grid Sheet to the Sidekick Cutting Plate and die-cut the wording using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Tiny Type Thinlits.
I used my trusty but very mucky T Square Ruler to align the letters
and used the remaining scrap of Distress Watercolor card to die-cut white hearts using the Falling Hearts Thinlits.
I die-cut the squiggles from Idea-ology BlackOut Kraftstock, backed with a Self Adhesive Sheet, using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Media Marks Thinlits.
As an afterthought, I re-stamped the snarky cat, fussy cut only the head, coloured the eyelids using Salty Ocean Distress Marker and a Distress Detailer Brush, fixed in place with Mini Foam Adhesive and added Ranger Glossy Accents to the nose.

I finished by matting the panel on to a 5" x 7" white card blank.
Toodle-oo for now
