Blue and White Cat #142
Finn has such gorgeous blue eyes, going with a blue and white theme picked out the colour in the photo perfectly. I wanted a background paper that had something going on - but not too much that it would distract from the main focal point. The flower paper again - enough pattern without being overpowering. I mounted both the photo and the flower paper in the same card which is a brown/green/gold shimmer cardstock.
I next cut out some dies out of white cardstock - all Memory Box, I used Blooming Vine, Bella Bouquet, Chesapeake Circle. I cut a couple of each die so I could play around with layout. Once happy with how they sat I delicately lifted the card stock to dab a little glue so they would stick in the place I had positioned them. Once dry, I then turned over and added more glue and stuck down my central panel. A few little blue gemstones in the centre of the flowers added an extra detail.
