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.
