CAT WITH A FLOURISH!

Hi everyone!  I am still playing with Tando FLOURISHES and this time I have been playing with a diddy one.  Just right for a 4x4" canvas.  I think I am in Christmas mode as I have been thinking about starting my pressie making :-D


The little canvas was one that I found discarded and was already painted blue so I just spritzed with gold & silver Glimmer Mists to give it some life.  So pleased I had missed the bin with this one hahahaha!!!!!


The cat is a brilliant stamp by Paper Artsy and sooo versatile.  You can have a lot of fun with this one.  Here I have coloured it with various Adirondack inks and added glossy accents to the stripes & eyes.  I cut it out and yes...that tail was tricky and very nearly amputated!  I added some wire for the whiskers before glueing in place.  The flourish has been painted with 2 acrylics....red/orange on the edges and silver on top.  Some pretty lace & teensy buttons finished it all off.  As for that quote...well....if you have ever had a cat you know exactly what thats about hahahahaha!!!!


Thank you for taking a look today, I really appreciate your comments if you have the time, HUGS XXX

I've just had a great catch up on here - fab crafting as usual, including the inches/tag and also the scrapping LO. And I love the way you've incorporated the flourish with the stamp and the buttons. Lovely to see that someone else is getting in the Christmas mood x
