Crazy Cat

The challenge at Come And Get It Challenges this week is MONOCHROME, I hope you'll join us for a bit of fun.  Pick a colour and off you go...

What a fun Bugaboo image to work with.  This goofy cat loves a fishy treat, but of course he can't catch them because he's crosseyed!

I paper pieced this cute cat, added a bit of colouring, and sat him on an easel card.  The background is made of chevron diecut borders in a couple of shades of orange, and a couple of patterned papers set them off.    The fish are diecut from all the materials used, with the edges inked.  I used a pawprint brad to act as the stopper, pushing it through foam adhesive squares to get it standing out.  The sentiment is tied on with dark orange linen thread.
