Kitty Lane Number 4

The last of the Kitty Lane stamps to show you today.  These are such great stamps.

The first one is called So You Think You Can Dance? Isn't that appropriate! It is a silhouette stamp, and I used a bit of Copics to highlight the dancers, but left them mostly black and white. Again they were sort-of-fussy-cut and mounted onto the card front.  There is a lot of Liquid Pearls used here to dot around.

The sentiment stamp is one I have had for a very long time from My Stamps.  Again I utilized the Copics pens. This was stamped using Memento Black Ink, onto SU Whisper White, and mounted on SU Black. A string of Liquid Pearl dots down the side was also added.

You cannot see clearly, but the black underneath the image is a piece of patterned flocked vellum, and it is mounted onto some SU More Mustard. Kitty sent me three sheets last time and I have used two to them now - delicious. I did remember this time to place it onto some double sided sticky JAC style paper! 

The whole is then on some pearlised card folded to make a blank square. 

My second and the last of the Kitty Lane stamps, is this one called CowboysWagon. It is a western theme image, so I went with that. Again, I used the Copics to colour, and sort the image as it is a bit detailed.The cows seemed to be grazing so I gave them some greener grass to eat than that on the hills. 

I used a frame from Merci to make it look as if it had been painted and framed. I coloured the red hearts on the frame with Copics. 

I then stamped out and coloured in both the horseshoe and the boots from a set by MFT called Wild, Wild West and fussy cut them out. I popped them up and just slid the horseshoe around the boots. I have used silver Stickles too on the horse shoe and the spurs on the boots. 

The sentiment comes from MTV too.

The whole is put onto some SU Garden Green and then attached to a blank black pearlised card.  

A card for a man. 

I will be entering these in the following challenges:

Wow, you have used both of those images so well. The pearls on the first card look like party lights. Love how you framed that second card.

WOW Susan. Amazing cards. The cow boy one is such a great image, the card looks like a framed picture and I love the sentiment in the first "dance to the beat to your own drum".
