Lucky You and Take Time - A Mark's Finest Papers Bonus

Here we are with the extra sets that are available this month as Mark's Finest Papers will soon begin the August New Release Blog Hop.  This little charmer comes from the new set called Lucky You!  I colored my kitty in some of the more common colors I spotted and backed it up with a coin background.  A little scored line separates my coins from my white space.  Since the kitty seems to be most often ceramic, I gave it a gloss of clear embossing powder.   

Next up, I have a sampling from the mini set called Take Time.  Of course, it compliments one of the new sets you will see in this month's release.  Keep your eyes peeled for that amazing set.  I used an emboss resist technique to show off the pocket watch.  Then I braided some copper cording for my pocket watch chain.  I'll see you in a couple of hours for the first day of the Mark's Finest Papers August New Release blog hop!  Cruise by the Mark's Finest Papers blog to see what some of the other designers did with these two sets!
 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

love the pocket watch card. The use of the gold string really fits with the stamp. Great job.
