I am back again with another of AALL & Create's new release and this time I have created an accordion card using 'Cat Love' by Janet Klein for AALL & Create (#256) along with Stencil #19 by Autour de Mwa.
The image is so quirky and I just adore her cat! Cutesy is way out of my comfort zone so I thought I would compensate and create something a bit more than just a standard card. I used Karen Burniston's Accordion die set by Sizzix to create a single accordion fold card. I think it shows her of quite well.....
I die cut the elements using Watercolour cardstock.
I brayered paint onto the front and back of the die cut elements and stamped
the images onto the separate die cut pieces.
Next, I used embossing paste to stencil the top and bottom of each of the frames. Once the paste was dry I applied a light coat of Distress Oxide to blend the stencil in on the front and I stencilled the back of the frames directly onto the frame with Distress Oxide.
I watercoloured all of the images, after stamping an extra set, fussy cut these and added them over the original images to give them some dimension. I 'grounded' the girl and cat by adding some ripped washi tape. I added a sparkly bow to her hair.
I stamped the sentiment and added it to the opposite side of the accordion. This is a view of the card, closed and from the back.

Thanks so much for your visit, I really appreciate it!
