Edit (10.2.17):  Thank you so much to everyone who voted for this card!  I really appreciate your endorsement which has encouraged me to keep striving.


This stylish lady clearly has a fondness for cats!  I'm giving her the benefit doubt and assuming that she's stroking the cat rather than encouraging it to vacate the seat for her! - Although the cat does look a little grumpy in my opinion.

Three stamp sets were used to create this scene on watercolour paper

I love combining two or three stamp sets to create a little scene but it usually takes a lot of patience and a bit of masking.  This combination was so easy!  I stamped the lady first and then used my trusty Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to position the cat's head under her outstretched hand.

To disguise her lack of legs (a minor inconvenience!), I stamped the pot plant from the Sitting Here set in front of her dress.  I added a hint of legs with a few strokes of the watercolour pencil.

I couldn't resist adding another cat inside the card!
Once I'd coloured the panel with watercolour pencils and an aqua painter, I assembled the layers: Pacific Point, Basic Gray and a Smoky Slate card.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
