Cheshire Cat Tutorial

I received a lot of interest for the card I posted a little while ago featuring the Cheshire Cat so I'm posting here the steps on how to put him together.

Step 1
I punched one complete set of the Foxy Builder punch each in Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo. I also cut out one extra mouth piece in Whisper White, a tail tip in Pink Pirouette and I used the Owl Builder Punch to punch two little feet only in Pink Pirouette. You can see the parts I kept from each colour in the picture.

Step 2
With the extra Whisper White mouth I put it partially back into the punch to trim it back down to a crescent shape.

Step 3
With the Smoky Slate marker I marked teeth onto the the Whisper White piece.

Step 4
I then trimmed down the side of each mouth corner to make the mouth fit more the the face.

Step 5
I used one of the balloon shapes from the Up, Up and Away Stamp Set (upside down) to stamp the stripes onto the body of the cat in Rich Razzleberry.

Step 6
I then stamped the tail piece in Rich Razzleberry using the striped tail stamp from Foxy Friends.

Step 7
Once the Rich Razzleberry was dry on the tail I then glued the pink tail tip onto the tail.

Step 8
I finished up the face next putting the pieces together. I used the larger side hole on my Crop-A-Dile to cut two small circles for the eyes out of Crushed Curry cardstock. Using the Basic Black marker I then drew on the eyebrows, nostrils and pupils of the eyes.

Step 9
Once the head was all stuck and dry I could then glue the head and tail onto the body. I then glued the two little feet I had punched from the Owl Builder to the body and lightly drew on some claws in the Basic Black marker.

And there you have it, one little Cheshire Cat!
