Yay for another fun Fusion Card Challenge where I chose to use both the sketch and was also inspired by the photo! Every farm has to have some barn cats to keep those mice away, so I went with the Scaredy Cat stamp set from Ink to Paper and paired it with a couple of hay bales! Those dies are so much fun to layer up, plus they come in two sizes (I used one of each).
The top hay bale layer with the most openings was color blended with Bright Buttercup and Harvest Gold inks. The middle layer was blended with Harvest Gold and Honey Nut inks. The bottom solid layer was colored with Cocoa Bean. After they were adhered together, I lightly sponged the edges with Cocoa Bean ink. The images were colored with Copics (Y11, Y13, Y15, Y38, YR16, YR09). The eyes, whiskers and noses were white embossed and I added a teeny tiny dot of yellow Enamel Accents (Lemon Twist) to a couple of the cats' eyes.
