I stamped the background (Impression Obseesion CAC "Clouds") using Distress Stormy Sky & Salty Ocean. The card is larger than the stamp, so repeated in the bottom section. You can't see the join because I strategically put my fence along the join line. ROFL.
I seem to get good use out of this musical notes stencil (Dreamweaver LJ853) which I pasted with Dreamweaver's Glossy Black, masking off the words on the stencil that ran in the center. Used the same paste for the cats at the bottom (LM266) - love these cats, it's another stencil I use a lot... BIG GRIN. Let everything dry, then wrote in my lyrics by Gene Kelly, using a .02 Micron pen and my "Fickle Font" I created recently.
Die cut the fence and gate (Memory box) from black cardstock, adhered it to card, cutting away around the cats.
Now the cats needed something to be so engrossed in, so I punched out a little dragonfly from some yellowish decorated paper I had made. I added Glitter Ritz "Cool Highlights" on the wings and colored the body. Must admit it's a bit surrealistic with the cats sitting on the clouds... I guess I must be in a strange mood.
