Thinking Cat


I made this for a man who is undergoing a lengthy course of treatment at the moment.  I like the colour challenge of navy, mustard and brown - it seems very masculine.

The cat is stamped on patterned paper and then on a layer of card; the flowers are stamped on white card, then all fussy cut and assembled.  I put on googly eyes for fun, and distressed the edges of the brown card for texture.  Gold heat embossed sentiment and gold dots for sparkle.

Image and sentiment: unknown    

Die: Couture Creations

Also:  Copics, Googly eyes, white pen, gold Stickles
