CCM #233 3-2-1

Our challenge this time is a 3-2-1 challenge. We would like to see your creations using 3 of one thing, 2 of another and 1 of a third. For example, 3 patterned papers, 2 diecuts, 1 image. It would be helpful if you could mention in your post what your 3,2,1s are!

My card was created with a premade paper from Clarity, that’s the one right at the back and one I made myself. But as I had several disasters trying to stamp onto a watercolour card I made myself I did it the opposite way around. I stamped the Katzelkraft Cat and Dogs onto the card first and then made the watercolour background around them with two of Jane Davenport’s Mermaid Markers in blue and yellow and lots of water.

The pattern in the background was made with contrasting oxide inks using a stamp from Chocolate Baroque, I think from their Harlequin Fragments stamp sheet.

The sentiment I created on my pc and added a black box around each of the words. I tore the card to look like the cat had ripped the wallpaper as it slid down the wall!

My 3 are the animals, 2 papers, and 1 sentiment.
