Welcome to reveal day. This is Scraps Of Darkness, Victoriana. It is gorgeous and full of Prima, Glitz and Kaisercraft goodness. It also features a handmade cameo pin.
As Mascot Designer Extraordinaire, (I see she has upgraded herself from just plain 'ol Mascot designer) Kitty is going to help unveil the Feb. kit with more of her down under adventures in Austrailia with her Standard Poodle friend, Chena. Chena belongs to fellow scrapper, Maggi Harding, in theory only. As any pet owner will tell ya, it is truely US who are owned. You can check out Maggi's blog at Scrap travel and Bark.
But enough of that, let's figure out what excatly is going on here with Miss Kitty.
To recap just how Kitty and Chena ended up in Australia - Episode #35 has them borrowing a ship and sailing across the seas to Australia. It's winter in NY and cold. Kitty prefers summer sun and heat so that's why she picked Australia. Plus she has some great scrapping pals in the Land Down Under. What better way than to make a scrap crop trip.
Sail they did. Cleverly avoiding the Royal Australian Navy and landing right in front of the Sidney Opera House. What amazing luck that is, wouldn't you say?
Chena and Kitty dropped their pirate hats in the sailboat so that they could blend in better on land and explore. Besides, pirates stick to the sea. Once on land, the duo become landlubbers.
After much walking, Kitty and Chena ran into some kangaroos. Once again, what luck. Kitty little legs were "dog tired", so she boldly asked if she could snag a ride to where ever the kangaroo happens to be hopping. Sorry Chena, you're on your own for transportation.
This is a once in a lifetime shot of Kitty catching a ride in a kangaroo pouch.
Who knows where they will end up. Maybe only a hop, skip, and a kangaroo jump away, or quite possibly a great leap away.
At any rate, Kitty's taking a "leap" of faith riding in style.
This design is based on the Dusty Attic Feb Sketch from Charlotte Jenkins, suepup. Thanks a million, Charlotte for inspiring and pushing our creativity.
I used the Dusty Attic Leafy Stems #2 DA0566 here. I painted them will Adirondack Paint in Willow, then rubbed thhe edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distressing ink.
This was also created for CSI- Color Stories and Inspiration casefile #6.Here is another view of the photo. Unbelievable, I know!
