Hi there 🙂 Recently, a special friend celebrated her 85th birthday. Her pride and joy is her fur baby, Mikey, so I wanted to incorporate him into her card somehow. I was going through my images, and found this one from Ike’s Art, which is now closed, after the owner, Suzie, sadly passed on last year 🙁 The flowers and the cat were perfect to use for my friends card. I colored the image up with my Prismacolor pencils, trying to match up Mikey’s markings along the way, and keeping the texture a bit rough to look like fur.
I matted the image twice, and placed it on a green background paper, also double matted. I die cut the sentiment and the number twice each, using the same silver shimmer and black papers that I used for matting, and glued them down so there was a shadow effect. I was really happy with the simple elegance of the finished card!
