It's the first Sunday of the month, and that means its time for the KitCats creations! Yours truly was the hostess, and for no particular reason, I was in the mood for something with a magical, whimsical, or fantasy theme.
Each kitten received a different assortment of the luscious papers in K&Co.'s Que Sera Sera collection, as well as a 2011 planner and an overabundance of embellies from my stash that had gone unloved for so long. (I hope my "kitchen sink" of embellies didn't overwhelm them - sorry, kittens!) My challenge was for them to surprise even me by offering them a choice to alter the planner or create a card (or both!) using any type of whimsical, magical, or fantasy image they had.
So here you have my altered planner! I "painted" the plain cardboard cover with distress ink, then sponged over that with several SU inks to coordinate with the DP panels. I wanted the planner to stay closed, so I attached a strip of DP long enough to wrap around, then added Velcro to the ends.
The real challenge was coloring and fussy cutting the tiny Summer Fairy image and getting all of the embellies to stay stuck to the image panel! Below are a couple close-ups of the embellies I chose.
While I created this to give as a gift, I really love the way it turned out, so I may need to keep it for myself. Shhhh . . . it will be our little secret!
I'm excited to see what the other kittens chose to create with my kit and what embellies they used, since I only used a fraction of what I included. Click on each kitten to see their whimsical, magical creations:
