Raining Cats and Dogs

These delightful cat and dog die sets from Claritystamp were launched yesterday evening at 6pm on Hochanda as the One Day Special.  Further shows can be seen today at 9am, 1pm and 5pm (GMT).  I had such fun playing with them; both whole and by snipping into them.  I couldn't resist a play on words for my first sample.
Die cut the Cats on a Wingback Chair, Cats on a Comfy Chair, Best Friends and My Best Friends Aperture dies from a piece of black paper.
Snip all the cats and dogs out of the apertures.
Trim a piece of Clarity stencil card to 6.75” x 6.75”. Use the clouds mask and the ink left on a stencil brush to add clouds. Start towards the top and brush the ink upwards off the mask. Move the mask down the card brushing ink off the mask upwards each time. Flip the mask between layers to use both edges.
Having tried out the wording on parchment to ensure a fit, add the cats and dogs to the cloud background.
Stamp It’s Raining cats & dogs in Onyx Black Versafine ink using the Word and Number Word Chains. Heat emboss in clear embossing powder.
To finish, add to the front of a 7” x 7” black card blank.
