Purrfect




The Scribbles Designs challenge this time is  "Say it with Snow".  Check out the inspiration and join us, here:   scribblesdesignschallenge


Image: Scribbles Designs - alley cat
Coloured with Copics
Background, paint, snowflakes and sentiment:  Pixel Scrapper
Scored border.

This design had a wee accident in the making but ended up making a more interesting card.  I cut the background narrower than it was supposed to be, so added the scored lines to the base card and let the cat sprawl out over it.  I was going to raise the cat on 3D foam but decided to make it flat for easier posting.

Seriously

I love nothing more than getting inky, so here we go with the image inked and the background inked, spritzed, sprayed and splattered!  For the glasses I used an embossing pen and black EP .

Sometime I want to send an appreciation or 'no reason' card, either to let someone know I'm thinking about them, to encourage them, or to recognise an achievement.
