Oh My Whiskers

I absolutely fell in love with these kitties and knew just the person who would squeal a bit if she had a card featuring this adorable pair... my Mom :)

I'd recently used my brick stencil and decided to create a wall to look as if everything had been left there at the end of the day.  I masked off the bucket/flowers and used Distress Ink in antique linen and tea dye for a shadow effect.

I added the sentiment before I started to colour with my pencils.

I used, what I call traditional colours... like green wellies and a proper metal bucket.  The kitty looked like he was reaching for something so I added a butterfly.

To finish I added a small grey line to ground the image/wall and used a bit of sparkle on the bucket.

  6. I caught myself smiling when I saw this card. You really made me think of the end of a day gardening. Love the soft colors to enhance the boots and the kitties. Nice sentiment. I wonder what stamp this is. Thanks for joining the party at Seize the Birthday.
