Splat, the Cat

     My sister's birthday is in two weeks and it's time to develop yet another card that is purple with a splash of cat, or is it cat with a splash of purple. 
     I was introduced to the Ranger distress marker spritzer tool a couple weeks ago. In case you haven't seen one it looks like this.
     Since I have the complete collection of Tim Holtz distress markers, I knew I would be able to put it to use. 
      The "splats" are made with Victorian Velvet, Wild Honey, and Dusty Concord. I stamped the cats from Gina K's brand new stamp set (Better With You). One would think that it would be difficult to perfectly stamp these cats on the splatted strip, but with the aid of my MISTI, it was a snap. They are stamped with Stampin' Up Perfect Plum ink.
     I embellished with gold cord, gold blink, and a lace flower with a pearl center.
