CAS(E) This Sketch #138

Thanks so much to Bazzill Basics for sponsoring this post!
I was provided with products, but all opinions are my own.

Today, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #138 designed by Chrissy Larson:

Isn't it super fun?
Here's my card:

To make my card, I used some post-it notes to mask off of rectangle 
I used a Tim Holtz stencil and blending tool to apply ink to the unmasked area.
I stamped the cat (from Mama Elephant's Three Amigos stamp set) in versafine onyx black ink 
over the woodgrain rectangle, as well as on another piece of Coconut Swirl cardstock. 
I heat embossed the cat in clear embossing powder. 
To colour him in, I pressed some of the same ink onto an acrylic block, 
added a little water and painted the wet ink onto my cat with a paintbrush. 
Then, I repeated the process with a dark grey ink, as well as with Delicata Silver ink. 
I cut the painted cat out by hand and then adhered him to my card. 

I added a banner diecut from some Bazzill Basics Monochromatic: Smoky cardstock using 
Papertrey Ink's double-ended banner die and and stamped with KIS: Birthday.
I matted the card with this cardstock as well.

I'm also linking this card up to this week's 
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.
