Goofy Things


I made this for a NZ cardswap buddy.  We had a sketch, and had to use an animal not it's natural colouring.  Lie in wait and jump out for a surprise .... who hasn't done this when they were kids?

I embossed card and swiped with DI's to make a brick wall with an opening in it (the shape of the sketch).  Stamped the cats onto patterned paper and fussy cut, added touches of Copic, glittery eyes on one cat and googly eyes on the other.  I think the background looks like a castle.   From Scraps and stuff I already had in my stash.

Cats: Tim Holtz

What wonderful critters, Carol, and a fabulous card.
I read the challenge wrong and coloured my critter in it's 'natural' colours - I could have had a ball with the image I chose! Darn
