This little cat must share a common ancestor with my Sophie – she is a dead ringer for my cat! And I suspect she gets up to the same high jinks, too!
For this LO, it was necessary to start with the base and determine which blocks of the template to use.
The background for the stairs is paper 20 blended over paper 11 in the pin light blending mode. Then just add elements and play with them until satidfied. For the cat's photo I used the mask in the kit with some adjustments.
