CASual Friday - A Clean and Simple Card with a Cat by Gail

Hello.  Gail here with today's CASual Friday post.  I have made a clean and simple card with the wonderful, most favourite, Curious Cat .  This cat comes with a tail, but I rarely use that, usually preferring to center him on my project. I stamped, embossed and masked the cat and then stamped and embossed the linked circles stamp from Round In Circles .  I added some colour to the circles and the cat with Promarkers and a white gel pen.  He looks a bit fierce, but he's just a very sweet pussy cat really.   There are still a few hours left to join the challenge Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz Supplies used: Rubber Dance Stamps Round In Circles Curious Cat Others supplies Grey pearlised card base Promarkers White Gel Pen Black and Clear embossing powder

I used Lindy's Magicals- with powders I had more control of where the colors go and how strong they are. To achieve that, I sprayed water over the tags, then added powder and then, where needed, I spread i
