Feline's Feelin' Fine

This week Tanya is hosting the Stampotique Designers Challenge and she has chosen monochromatic. Here's what she has to say.
Hello crafty fellows, today it's my turn. I selected the theme monocromatic. Well, in fact it's a big challenge to myself.  I actually prefer it a little more colorful. But restrict myself to work tone in tone? First let's see the projects from the amazing Stampotiue Design Team. And now... Come on up! I'm longing to see all your stunning monochromatic artworks. 

This was a real challenge for me too Tanya, 'cos my eyesight is rubbish and I really struggle with picking out colours (hence my projects are sometimes a bit on the bright side lol) I've recently got Roc's beautiful Feline and knew I wanted to see her in purples, though according to my daughter she's pink! Mmm when does purple become pink - debate lol.
I started with a MDF coaster - love you MDF Man, and painted in lilac and purple then stamped and masked Feline. I over stamped in Versamark with Spiraling Out of Control and Vintage Script, then applied Pan Pastels over the top.
Feline is coloured in Distress Markers, and her wings and crown have had Glossy Accents blobbed in.
It then had a quick burst with cheap hairspray to seal the PP's and a generous coat of matte varnish to keep it all nice.
This has definitely had the seal of approval 'cos Neil says it's nice and I should make some more, rather than his usual 'what is it?' :-)
I hope you get the chance to join in with our challenge and go with the monochrome. Remember there's a chance to win a $30 gift certificate, but please - no digi's, and remember to put the number of the challenge when you link up.
Thanks very much for looking x


  1. Feline looks mightily lovely in pink surrounded by purple :-) x

  2. Feline is looking mighty fine and perfectly at home in that wonderfully layered background!

    She's the kind of cat that loves to surround herself with bright colors and lots of great patterns.

  3. Brilliant Sue but then who wouldn't love a pink cat? :) xx

  4. She's so pretty in pink (or purple)... Agree that colour is a slippery concept - for instance where do you draw the lines along the whole blue-turquoise-green spectrum I like playing in?!

  5. Oh, such a wonderful creation. Love the colors :)

  6. I love that cat stamp from Roc as well it's fab!
    Sorry to hear you suffer with your eyes, like Kathi and I do ... Funny we all craft though!

  7. Really love it too Sue, Feline is so cute on this!! You make a great use of your PP, I would do well to follow your example, I have a lot of PP sleeping in my stash Lol! Hugs Coco xxx

  8. I have never created an artful coaster, Sue, so I might appreciate this one more than most as I am in awe right now! Love your colors here, and Roc's feline...well, ROCKS! A wonderful combination of elements!

  9. I really want to do coasters myself, you did a wonderful job. I love it!!

  10. Such a cute kittie & the coaster's fab too.
