You're One Cool Cat

Hello! First off I apologize for the horrible photo's. Grr. I'll have my new camera soon. Yay! Anyhoo, I started this card by coloring the adorable kitty from the Diddle Diddle set from PeachyKeenStamps. For the body of the kitty I used only one distress marker in spiced marmalade. I controlled the color by adding more and less water to my brush. I used vintage photo for the violin and spun sugar for his ears. I used the Polka Dots stencil by Heidi Swapp to create my patterned paper with orange soda and bubble gum hero arts shadow inks. Then I cut a circle out of the side with a die. 
That greeting is from the Cool Cats set from PeachyKeenStamps.  I finished it off with sequins, gems, and some sakura glitter pen on the violin. :)
