Happy Little Cat

     I discovered a new artist (new to me, that is) the other day and fell in love with some of her felines (of course!)   She publishes her images under the name "Drawn by Krista."  This is just the happiest cat I've seen in ages.  :-D


Before I even colored the fur baby,
I decided on the sketch from The Outlawz.


Can you believe how faithful I was to the design?
I usually go off on a tangent.  :-D

     I grabbed my ProMarkers, colored the image, and cut it with a circle die from QuickKutz.  I dug into my storage of alcohol inks, chose three and brayered them across a stamped background scrap, then die cut a hexagon shape and used it for the frame around the image circle.

     I cut strips of CS and Paper Studio dp, layered them onto a card front and added the borders of flowers above and below the strips.  For embellishment, I added sequins (my one diversion from the sketch which had buttons) and a burlap ribbon bow.  No sentiment on this one yet because I haven't decided how I'm going to use it.

     I'm here for a short while and then will be leaving the end of the week for more travels until after 4th of July.  I have a few posts scheduled during my absence but I may be out of touch for commenting.  Whether or not I can access the internet whenever I want is always a question.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Please continue to leave comments.  The "Word Verification" really isn't on.  BLOGGER INSISTS ON SHOWING THE "CAPTCHA" ICON BUT IF YOU IGNORE IT AND JUST PUBLISH YOUR COMMENT, IT WILL POST JUST FINE.  I WISH I COULD GET RID OF IT BUT THERE'S NO OPTION FOR THAT WHEN THE COMMENTS ARE WRITTEN IN A SEPARATE BOX.  SORRY.
