We Gato Fiesta

How could little ol' cat lover me NOT make a card like this? Punny and cute--win, win!

I started by diecutting and sponging the base layer. So bright and happy. I cut the fiesta from green paper but decided it need even more pop so I coated it with Glossy Accents.  I originally had a dot of Enamel Accents for the "i" but my cat had other ideas so the enamel heart covers some ugly.

I spent quite a bit of time working on the cat's shading. Quite pleased with how that turned out. Going to keep practicing adding those dark shadows on my other work.  What a fat little kitty now.

I'm entering this in Seize the Birthday without optional patterned paper, Time OUT #110, Simon Says Wednesday Use More Than One Stamp

The Details:  Hero Arts Cinco de Meow and Papel Picado Confetti die, MFT Fiesta die, Doodlebug Design Rainbow Hearts, Distress Oxide Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade, and Picked Raspberry, Ranger Glossy Accents, Scor-Tape, Copics
