Sheba the Catgoyle -- a friend in a high place

Here's Sheba, a digital stamp by Smeared Ink. She's a very lovely catgoyle, who hangs out on tall buildings and is the queen of all she surveys.

Sheba, her alcove, and her her building (overlooking Paris) were colored with Toner Grey Copic markers. The alcove was drawn in with a template from Fairy Tale Creations. The "stones" were created with the Copic aibrush system and my beloved Bricks template from The Crafter's Workshop. Love their stencils, and this one has gotten a lot of use!

The grey base level gray cardstock is textured and looks kind of stone-like (stoned? stony?). I used a Paper Shaper corner punch and also used a Borderabilities die by Spellbinders. I sponged silvery black Brilliance ink over the die, so that border strip looks metallic, though you could never tell from the photo.

Thanks for visiting today!

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
• Craft Your Passion: Monochromatic challenge
• Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes
• Outlaws Promarker/Copic Friday: Anything Goes
