I once had a conversation with Evelyn about our favourite Altenew inks. Lord knows there are SO many to pick from. For Evelyn its Caramel Toffee and Moon Rock. For me it has to be Morning Frost. It is without a doubt, the perfect grey.

I used it on mass with the beautiful Floral Shadow Stamp Set to make a background to match my pattern paper.

I love how well the ink transfers on to the Solar White cardstock. It’s always so clean and there is no bleed. I also framed my photo with Altenew’s fantastic vellum for a soft layered look.

For my title I altered a crate paper sticker with one of the sentiments (This Moment) from the Floral Shadow Stamp Set. I love, love, love how it turned out. It totally unique and all mine. I then stamped out a few more Morning Frost Floral Shadow leaves and fussy cut round them (being careful to leave a white boarder for contrast against the pattern paper) to add as ephemera and tie in my stamped background.

I love the extra dimension and movement it adds to the page too. I’m pretty proud of myself really. Not just because it’s a pretty cute layout, but also because it September at this is my first cat layout for the year. Secretly I take this as of sign that I have more of a life than I did last year, eh… and the year before that, and the year before that…
