SC353.....Punched Black Kitty

Happy Hump Day Peeps!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the sketch challenge this week on Splitcoaststampers.
I know most of you remember the kitty treat bag I made like this one last year, see it HERE.
I used a tutorial I found HERE. Well, I decided to re-create him for my sketch challenge.

He is made with punches,  I couldn't resist putting a big ol full moon behind him, I punched it with crushed curry with my 1-3/4 inch circle punch and sponged the edges with Cajun craze ink. I added the kitty to the moon with some dimensionals. The kitty is made from punches, the head is the large oval punched in black and slide back into the punch and punching off a bit more of the oval. The body is the word window that is trimmed up the side to a pint at the top. The legs and feet are punched hearts from the heart to heart punch. The collar is the slot punch and the eyes are 1/2 inch circles cut flat on one side. The ears are also made from up side down hearts. the eye pupils are tiny strips of old olive. I made my tail a bit different from the original, I used my oval punch and the negative from another cut oval.

The base of my card is Cajun Craze and I followed that with some basic black and then the DSP on here is from the Frightful Sight paper pack. 
I mounted the cat and moon on a piece of whisper white card stock that I matted with basic black and embossed with the square lattice EF.  I used dimesionals to add that to the card. The strip of black is 1 inch wide and then I added another piece of DSP from the same pack. 

The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and is stamped with black stazon onto whisper white and matted with black. I added a button that matched the moon that I had in my stash and threaded some black card stock through the eyes of the button and added it to the end of the sentiment flag.
I then added some small black brads to the corners.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
