Welcome to Day 7 … the final day of the ATC, The Cat’s Meow, 7 ways in 7 days series.
If you’re not interested in ATC’s, stick with me, because these ideas and techniques can be used for card making as well!
Given that Mama Elephant has The Dog’s Woof and just released The Bunny’s Hop (due in store any day now!), I thought I would use the set that started it all … The Cat’s Meow. This set has an awesome multi-kitty border, as well as some individual kitties and a whole lot of accessories. It’s a fun set, and in this series I will show you 7 different ways that you can use it. Today’s techniques are Copic colouring, and aging pattern paper using Distress Inks.
I have started with a base of watercolour paper, cut 2.5″ x 3.5″, as this is the standard size for an ATC. You can see the whole project, step by step, in the video below.

In conjunction with The Frolicking Fairy, I am hosting ATC swaps. Marcia is the host for the USA, and I am the host in Australia. This months theme is ‘Anything Goes’, which means the colours, theme, stamp brand, techniques, etc are totally up to you! If you want to read more about the current swap, you can CLICK HERE for the blog post. It is due 16th March, and today is the last day for late signups. You’ll find a link to the sign up form at the end of the ATC swap blog post.
No more waiting … roll tape!
