MMSC35 - Cheshire Cat

Welcome to Week # 35 of Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge! With it being a new month, we have a new monthly sponsor to go along with our new weekly sponsor! First, our sponsor this week is Sunflowers & Dragonflies. The image I used is called Cheshire Cat from their Alice in Wonderland collection designed by my friend, Jessica Grundy.

Our monthly sponsor is our very own DT Sister, Jeni of D'Amour Allure. She is offering several of the stamps she has produced and are only available at McMahon Five Designs as prizes this month. She now offers 2 stamp lines: Vintage Vanities and Pretty Little Things. Thanks, Jeni!

Aren't the little cat ears on her head just the cutest? I added Stickles, of course, to make them sparkle! I envisioned her sitting on something and a mushroom came to mind. I do not have any mushroom stamps so I cut out, stamped and airbrushed with Copics my own little mushroom.

I used my Cricut to make the grass. I also used my Flower Soft for the very first time. It took a couple tries but was really quite easy once I figured out which glue worked best. I added an ivory lacey leaf behind the image as well just to jazz up the background texture.

Congratulations to the winners! Be sure to check out the sketch this week as it's really simple and fun!

Sue, Happy New Year! What a lovely card you made with the cute Cheshire Cat image. Love the mushroom she's sitting on and the grass is a great touch. Your flower soft, string and little cat charm just finish her perfectly! Great job with the sketch.

Very clever way to make a mushroom, Sue! The flower soft and grass was a great touch to make things dimensional. Did you use Aleene's glue? which one works best with those flower soft? :) Wonderful job on the sketch! xox ~Jeni

Cute card with sweet image. Love those FlowerSoft texture and the little cat charm is cool addition. I think I have that grass cartridge too, but my Cricut Expression from my husband in Christmas 2008 is still in it's original box and has not opened yet. My old Cricut has given to my niece, lol. Your project really inspires me to open my box from "2008", lol!
