A Tail of two Pussycats

**Edited Post: The Sincerely Yours Creations Blog has been removed. It is a shame for those of you who have entered the challenges and the sponsors who have been kind enough to support the blog. I have no further information at this time. **

Hi Folks, it's time for another challenge over at the Sincerely Yours Creations Challenge Blog. This time, the theme is 'Cats and Dogs'. Being a cat lover, I opted for a fabulous cat image called 'Snoozing Kitty on the Edge', which reminded me of my grey kitten Cody. He has huge paws, just like this image, and likes to sleep a lot. However, I couldn't make a card without adding in my other kitten Poppy, so I found an image that looks just like her! She is always full of beans, and darting about all over the place, and this image is just perfect.

I coloured a piece of watercolour paper cut to size using the wrinkle free Distress method, then once it was completely dry, I printed the black cat onto the paper, using a custom setting on my printer to specify the paper size. I practised on a scrap piece of paper first! I then stamped the wall across the background underneath the image, and coloured it in with pencils. This is a clear edge stamp from Chocolate Baroque. I masked the wall and stamped a CB tree so that it appears to be behind the wall, and added some little sequin flowers, dropping some Stickles in the centre of each flower. I stamped some flowers and added more sequin flowers underneath the wall.

I coloured the sleeping cat and cut him out before adding him to the picture. I stamped a couple of Lavinia dragonflies around the tree, and added a great CB sentiment to finish.

Our sponsor this week is Eureka stamps:

Love the way you created this scene. The tree looks amazing with those
flowers & I love the way you've caught the character of your own cats in
the creation - the photos really do show that.
With Easter Greetings from me

Fabulous card Judith. I love the little scene you've created and especially the grey cat so totally chilled out on top of the wall, lol!

I can't believe how your two have grown. They are beautiful and have a very 'superior' air, lol!
