Cool for Cats

I decided to try out a technique I saw in this months edition of Craft Stamper to create the quilted effect backing paper. You use a piece of acetate and shade along the edge with Distress Inks or Adirondacks moving the acetate along a couple of centimetres keeping the lines equidistant and parallel. As I am not confident in my aligning skills I decided to draw a line 2cm in from the edge of the acetate as a guide and it really made the job easy.  
The Pussycat is a Docrafts stamp I came across while sorting my stash. Amazing what you forget you've got isn't it? Anyway I coloured it with copics and added a touch of glitter here and there.
Quite a simple card to create but a very effective technique, although the quilting doesn't show to full effect in the photo.
As always thank you for stopping by
