{The Cat's Pajamas} TCP Tuesday 324 Challenge

It's time for another TCP Tuesday at The Cat's Pajamas with a challenge to use fall colors on your project. The challenge runs for two weeks and The Cat’s Pajamas products are not required although we do love it when you use our stamps and dies.

The outline images from the Sketchy Flowers set were stamped with black waterproof ink and the stems with Forest Moss distress ink onto watercolor cardstock. I then stamped the matching solid images - slightly offsetting from the outline - using Rusty Hinge distress ink for the flowers and Forest Moss again for the leaf. After cutting out the watercolored piece with a stitched rectangle, I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Stacked Sentiments. I used a paintbrush dipped in water to soften and spread the distress ink portions and then added some even messier watercoloring around the flowers and sentiment. I thought it needed a little something else but since it was a sympathy card I didn't want to add sequins or even my go to embellishment of enamel dots so I stamped a small image from the sentiment set to direct the eye around the image. The image piece was matted onto Simply Chartreuse cardstock.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps, PTI and Strathmore watercolor cs, Ranger Distress ink, Simon Says ink

Here are the details:
  1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat's Pajamas blog and our Facebook page.
  2. If you want to play along you just upload your design to The Cat's Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button by the Monday, 11:55 EST before the next challenge.
  3. You are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas stamp or die but if you have them we would love to see them.
  4. On the following TCP Tuesday, the winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $10 or $15 if a TCP product is use.
