MDS Wall Decor with CASE-ing the Catty

The latest CASE-ing the Catty challenge is drawing to a close, but I was lucky to get some time this afternoon to finally have a go at something that has been on my "to do" list for ages.  This week's challenge is to use the "Home Decor" section of the catalogue as inspiration for a project.

Here is what I have done:-

I love the large wall art on pages 100 & 101, & was planning to use the "you can never have too much happy" sentiment from the Yippee-Skippee set to create a BIG image above my crafting cupboard.  I was really disappointed to find that the set hasn't been released as an MDS digital download yet, so I changed plans & used this one from Feel Goods to create my home decor piece. 

I have placed it on the wall in my study, next to some family photos & above the desk where my e-cutter resides.  It's very decorative script, so I kept it small (roughly 10" wide x 8 high"), as I only wanted a subtle look.  I needed to tweak the file a bit in my cutting program to make those twirly whirly bits suitable for cutting!!!  I have used white vinyl to match the furniture in the room & the vinyl has a matt surface which I think looks better when you are putting it on the wall.  :) 

Here it is in situ:-

I really had fun with this & am looking forward to creating more wall art (hopefully I don't have to wait too long for the digital version of Yippee-Skippee to be released!)

Thanks to the team at CASE-ing the Catty for the fabulous inspiration!  You can find the amazing DT samples & gallery here (just click on the graphic):-
