Bah, Hum-cat

     We all know about Scrooge's famous "Bah, Humbug" phrase but now there's "Bah, Hum-cat"and he's as Dickensonian as can be!  Image is from Rick St. Dennis.


Isn't he fabulous?

     I colored him with ProMarkers, then fussy cut the image.  I used a die from Spellbinders to cut out an oval from a scrap of forest green CS, and trimmed it top and bottom to fit the size of the card.  I was actually using not the oval die cut but the negative piece left behind.  I saved the oval for some other project.  That went down on a white card base for a look of some winter snow behind the image.

     It looked a little bit plain with the image sent into the empty oval so I looked for something else to add.  I found another scrap of green CS, dug out a Sue Wilson die, and used it to cut the delicate, filigree frame.  I glued that down (a long and tedious process because of all the tiny curlicues) and then added the image and sentiment on top of it.

     Finally, I added a bit of red glitter to his bowtie for a tiny bit of sparkle.
