Left of Centre Challenge 24 - Meijen's 'Cute v Creepy'

...well the theme this week has a schizophrenic twist...! Is it cute or is it creepy...? I can't tell! And there are some really cute & creepy demos over at LOC this week - I can tell you!

Mine is Meijen's 'Nibbles the Cat'.  

Cute but kinda creepy - yeah...?

8"X 8" prepared card.
Tim Holtz Dusty Concord Distress inkpad
Meijens image printed onto Ryman's 200gsm coated white card.
Copics Sketch markers
DCWV Pet stack cardstock approx 18.5 x 11.5 cm (plus scrap to cut four kitties from).
LLB foil cardstock  18.5 x 8.5 cm
Lenght of black grosgrain ribbon.
Bulldog clip
Brad in shape of a paw
Black card 18.5cm x 8.5cm
Black card 18.5 x 11.5 cm

Colour Meijen's image with markers of choice.  
I used YR18, YR15 YR09,  YR04
N5, N7, C1 C00
YG06, YG07, YG00
BV31, BV13, V25

Using the inkpad, distress the edges of the prepared card unevenly.
Trim the foil card with deckle-edge scissors just smaller all round and adhere with choice of adhesive (I used a tape-runner) to corresponding black card.
Do the same with the Pet Stack cardstock and the other piece of black card.
Adhere the Pet stack mat on the card to the right hand side of the prepared card, keeping margins equal.
Adhere the LLB mat to the left hand side keeping margins equal also.
Adhere the ribbon with DS tape along the bottom of the card.
Cut some kitties out of the scraps of Pet Stack and adhere to the ribbon with foam squares.
Clip the image to the bulldog clip and attach by the brad.

I hope you like my Scaredy Cat - please do pop over to the LOC blog and join in!
