Sassy Kitty

Good Monday Everyone!

I have for you today, a project that I did for fun and to try out a couple techniques that are new to me.  I call this Sassy Kitty because my Isabella (a calico) used to sit under the orange tree and watch the Towhee's build their nest.  Her tail would swish and flick and every so often she would chatter but she never bothered to go after them.
I created my little scene by trying a torn garden technique that I saw on the Stamps by Judith website.  I have to say that I had fun with that one.  Then I tried drawing my own clouds and coloring them in with my Copics, following the examples of a few artists who's work I admire.  At present, I'm favoring the old masking technique.  :p
I popped just about everything up on this project but the camera doesn't want to show that so well.  I measured, and at the thickest part is 3/8".  This started out as a simpler card with just a flower or two to embellish, but once I get my hands on my dies and punches, LOOK OUT!!!  I didn't plan to get so carried away...
As usual, I'm pressed for time as I must finish up my DT card for TOFC.  Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such lovely comments.  If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.  Have a great day and a wonderful week!
