AMMCC6 - Take TWO!

I'm having fun.  LOL.  Here's take TWO on the AMMCC6.  Our challenge:

My page:

So...what did I NOT drag out this time.  ;-) 
Yesterday, I spent time with Cameo.  I got her some new materials & patterns to cut;  we made a scalloped stencil from stencil material.  mollymoo spent a little while poking out scallops.  LOL.  It was all good.  Anyway, there were some places it did not cut through...and I thought it was kinda sorta neat, ya know.  I still have pink, hot pink and gray on the brain.  SU! Pretty in Pink, taped on the stencil and went to town with light molding paste & a plastic picnic knife. 
Then this mornin' I dug through my Studio Calico Marks & Co scrapbook kit, RIPPED the paper & rubbed on some SU! Tea Stain.  Pasted that on...having hiked up to my shop earlier for a SU! background stamp...Print Pattern and slapped on some Encore Silver.  Went outside and sprinkled on some Mr. Huey Skyscraper...let me say, I gasped!  I forget it dries to a nice gray. 

I ripped some SU! fabric and stitched it on with some SU! gray taffeta, added some pinked velvet in light pink and hot pink...and then stitched on some wide gray grosgrain!  I'm loving all the frames around cute little T-2.  That was her first night in the house. 

Frames, die cuts, PL card, stitching template...all from Marks & Co.  The cat clip and the thickers, also from Studio Calico.  I love the look of the silver diamonds! 

Those splatters...the molding paste dries to a velvet texture.  Interesting. 

More stitching & splatters...and some silver diamonds!

Another page...that started just cuz...turned into a neat page featuring T-2.  LOL.  She sat in the window taking a nap the whole time I worked on the page!  'cept when I went outside...she followed me to the door.  What a cat!
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a moo'valous day!
