WWC 156 – Penny’s Feminine” Anything Goes” Challenge



This week’s challenge over at Watercooler Wednesday is WWC 156 – Penny’s Feminine “Anything Goes”.

Image may contain: one or more people and textJanuary is such a busy month for me, as so many special people have their birthday.  For our challenge this week, I have chosen this very feminine birthday card.


It features a cute, gold embossed cat image from Waffle Flower – Flora Cat Play, which I water coloured using Distress Inks.  I then added a double layer of Wink of Stella to make sure it was very glittery!  (IRL – LOL!)   The background used Distress Ink, overstamped in gold using SSS Falling Background Stamp Set – Hearts.

The Sentiment die is from MFT – Brushstokes Birthday Greetings, gold embossed and layered up 3 times.

For a bit of fun and interest, I added the gold cord from the end of the sentiment to make it look as though the cat was playing.

Please be sure to check out all the wonderful creations from the rest of the team on our blog.

Challenges: Seize the Birthday ,  CAS-ual Fridays  , The Card Concept #86 {Old Fashioned Love} ( I loved the feminine, old – fashioned look of the room with pinks, flowers  and an elegant feel, where you would expect to find old china ornaments along with other bric a brac), and  As You Like It – Favourite way to add stitching (faux, real, drawn) & why (I love the look of the plain stitched edges to a panel as it adds a lovely finished look and adds that extra elegant element.)


As You Like It Challenge

Thanks so much for visiting.

Enjoy some crafting time

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  1. Helen what a delightful feminine card you’ve shared. I love the layered sentiment and that gold cord coming down to tease your wonderful gold kitten. She’s adorable with that floral design. I love the rain of hearts in the background and contrasting blue. Simply a terrific card! Thanks for sharing.


  2. Oh Helen, what a wonderful image of a cat. This is a stamp I’d love to own. Love that aqua background for your gorgeous gold embossed cat. The soft colouring of the images inside the cat really adds a lot of interest and additional elegance. Love that adorable little string which you added for the cat’s enjoyment.
