Sweet Kitty


This is another card I made whilst house sitting

The image was unbranded, stamped in Versafine Clair Pine Cone ink, and coloured with 
Polychromo pencils.  I am rather partial to ginger cats, and was thinking of my own boy as I did this, as he loves to 'supervise' me in the garden.

The main panel was sprayed using Lindy's Mica spray - one was Get A Guy Gold, the other was a gold toned green, but I cannot recall the name of it.  It's beautifully sparkly IRL

I edged the image panel and the main panel with an orange ink, and added a chiffon bow to one side of the image panel, and three flat back clear rhinestones

I finished the inside with a trimming of the background paper layered over a piece of the ribbon

I am linking this to:

So sweet, Maxine. The mica spray and chiffon bow really "dress up" this kitten! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Word Art Wednesday this week.

Such a gorgeous image such a pretty cat. Our last cat was a huge ginger one, he was one we cat-napped (for purely good reasons) and sadly we only had him for 18 months. But I like to think he went to meet his old owner and they are happy together again.
I love how you have put the image in an oval, such a lovely shape to frame something, especially a portrait. The flowers look lovely, you do well with your polychromos.
Blessings, Neet xx
