Outlawz Tuesday Color +
It's getting harder and harder for me to keep up with all of the events and challenges out there on FB, Blogs and other forums so I find myself trying hard to do "double duty" so I can fit them all in. Right now Sandra Caldwell has 25 of her Patriot and Americana stamps at a 50% discount through May 25th (see them all HERE) and launched a challenge on her FB Group page to use any of the stamps in a project but no red, white or blue. Eiyiyi! I started out with #1095 Raggedy Cats Americana and realized that today was the last day for the Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge with this lovely inspiration pic.
That helped a lot, since choosing colors often takes me days and I also remembered this weathered wood background DP and color coordinating striped glitter paper that reminded me of the ties. The kitties are colored with Copics and cut and matted with Spellbinders Labels 12. I added the musical notes (from Jolee's) because they look like they're singing "Happy Birthday" to join in the May SUYP Furrything Goes/Birthday Challenge.
I'm also entering this in the DL.Art May Linky Challenge, Simon Says Wednesday A Bit of Sparkle (the striped DP is glittered, you just can't see it in the pic), Pile it On #130 Animals, Simon Says Monday Little Critters and Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #58 AG.
