Continuing with my card for today. My cardbase is Brushed Black by Spellbinders, as are the die cut Mischevous cats. For the background I am using Altenew's Embossing folder Organic Linen

I did the smooshing technique using distress inks in Fossilized Amber, Carved Pumpkin, Rusty Hinge, Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon and Wild Honey, then set it aside to dry.
As I mentioned I die cut the cats and their faces using Spellbinders Brushed Black cardstock. I then die cut the pieces required for Otis, using different colours of cardstock. When necessary I coloured the die cut piece using Copic markers.

Once I was finished with the colours, I glued the pieces of Otis together.
I then glued in place the background embossed piece using Art Glitter glue. To the background I adhered Otis using foam squares. I then glued in place the cats, wrapping the tales of some around  and the Star.

To the cat faces I added highlights to the ear with a white gel pen.
I attached the cats to my background using thin foam squares, wrapping a few tales around other pieces on the card. I also attached the Star hanging from the top tip of Otis.

To finish I applied Pops of Color in Glitter Gold.

Thank you for joining me today. Next on the hop is
