Paco Kitty- ColourQ #151

Howdy Bloggers!
Wow - it is only 78 degrees here in Dallas today.
A high temp of only 78 degrees.
In August. In Dallas. 
Unheard of!

Today I have my DT project for ColourQ and the fall colors were gret
but I wanted to use them in a non-traditional way. I really wanted to play up
the blue so that the layout looked more summery than fall.

Look at my pretty kitty! Isn't he sweet???? 
I used Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor, Prima, Viva Decors Modellier Creme
some bling, the stick pins I made myself, and the ruffled paper is from a sheet 
of KaiserCraft paper. I also used Glue dots (3-D, Craft and Glue lines), Quick Quotes Powder Puff
inks, my sewing machine and Tattered Angels ink.

I love to make my own stick pins and if you want to learn
how to do it I have a great tutorial HERE on my blog. Super easy.

I used a Crafters Workshop Stencil and Viva Decor's Modellier Paste to make this 
awesome background.
 I cut the edge from a die cut KaiserCraft sheet, sprayed it with ink and 
scrunched it up to make the ruffle.

Here is the fabulous palette from ColourQ - be sure to join in the fun. 
You have until noon on Sunday to link up your project over at the blog.

I am also linking up at the following challenges:
Catered Crop - Distress(the center doily and the ruffle)
Quick Quotes - Handmade Embellishment  (stick pins)
Use Your Stuff - Let Summer Inspire You 
Sketches With A Twist - Paint/Mist with the sketch

Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a great week.
