Hello Cat

Isn't this the cutest image?  Check out the one I did in January which is quite different but uses the same image.
I made this one for a cardswap in which we had to make our own background.

I used oxide distress inks for the background, then spritzed, dabbed, splattered and misted onto watercolour paper, so it looks thick and textured, then distressed the edges. The image is printed onto hot pink card, then the eye detail coloured in with white pigment pen.
