You're the Cat's Miaow!
One of my dear crafting friends has been feeling a bit 'blue' lately. She is a wonderfully talented lady who makes the most exquisite cards and is always leaving me encouraging comments. Anyway, I wanted to show her I was thinking of her and to try to cheer her up, so I made her a little RAK. She's let me know that she's received it, so I can share it with you now.
* Image - Mo Manning 'Little girl in kimono'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - K & Co (I think!)
* Corner stamp - Objective Design 'Art Deco'
* Vellum Pocket - Craftwork Cards
* Sentiment - PC generated
* Everything else from my stash
The image is another one of Mo Manning's fabulous illustrations, I just adore these!
I tried to make the font look as 'oriental' as possible (don't know how successful that was!) and I aged my tag and little flower with Distress Inks. Looking at the pictures there is a mark on the vellum pocket. Don't know what this is, hadn't noticed it before, but I'm so messy!!
I wouldn't normally have used these colours, but my little vellum pocket was orange, so the rest of the colour scheme was built up around this really. Having said that, I really liked the end result of this and thought that the colours suited this sweet image very well!
Unfortunately, as you probably already know, I'm useless at colouring animals, so the cat is done in the minimalist style lol!
Thanks as always, to my visitors who leave comments, I love receiving them and returning the visit!
