The free image that Jackie is providing for use during this month's "Hearts and a Sassy Sentiment"-themed progressive challenge is called Pin Up Kitty. The photo of this month's Pin Up Kitty project must be uploaded here before midnight EDT on February 13th.
After I fussy cut my Copic-filled image, I used my brush-tipped Copic black multi-liner to create a silhouette look of the back in case any part of the back showed beyond my project's edge. I covered the front of my Pin Up Kitty with a layer of Glossy Accents for amazing shine and additional dimension.
My Pin Up Kitty is popped up along the handle side of the tea pot. An Inky Antics stamped sentiment lies near the kitty image. The sentiment alone doesn't seem too sassy but taken in context near the image I think it can be pretty sassy. A My Minds Eye Miss Caroline Dilly Dally "Best" red heart pin slides behind the sentiment.
The lid of the box can be removed. I've folded the base of a Lifestyle Crafts Tag It Kits tag then machine-sewed the edge. The pocket holds a Crafty Secrets Tea with Alice large set sentiment as well as a few hearts stamped with Adirondack Red Pepper ink. A heart with arrow eyelet holds the tag to the tip of the lid with a 20-gauge black thread. A row of Heidi Swapp bling borders the tag pocket.
