Kitten in a Teacup Double Challenge Card

I needed a shabby chic card for a swap so I combined it with two challenges, Mojo Monday and Shabby Tea Room.

I used an embossing folder I recently got for the panel under the main design elements. I wanted a bit of interest in the background without overwhelming the soft and shabby papers. I added white ink to highlight the pattern.

TSTR 121

The kitten is coloured with Copics to give her a soft, shabby tabby feel. I used pink/peach rick rack to mimic the ruffled icing ribbons in the inspiration photo.


I turned the sketch but otherwise stayed pretty true to it ( just rotating it and flipping it). Something I noticed the judges of Mojo Monday tend to like! The entries they choose almost always include all the elements in the same places and in the same proportions. Something I struggle with!

I’ve got lots to do to get ready for a congregation BBQ tomorrow so this was a super fast post! Let me know if you need any more details!

Enjoy, Rebecca
