meow

Hello, friends.  This is my 2nd post today.  One of the new challenges for April in the OWSE Yahoo group is to create a piece with cats.  I have to tell you, I'm not a cat lover and know there isn't a cat stamp in my stash.  So I had to get a bit creative.  I went online and looked for cat images.  I really didn't want a whole cat, just the hint of one, and what I found was perfect.  So I printed a copy and then traced it lightly with pencil.  Then I used copic markers and a black pigma pen to fill it in.  I added highlights in the eyes with white gel pen. 

I printed the 'meow' on the computer and sponged green ink over it and then traced around it with the black marker.  A few dots of faux piercing finished off the card. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Meow!

I'm not a cat person either, so I'm very impressed with your creativity on this!

I am a total cat person, I love this card and those eyes love those eyes.

adorable Melody! Funny all the comments about not being a 'cat' person. My eldest son wants a kitten in the worst way and I keep having to tell him NO because they grow up to become cats.

I am very much a cat/dog person, and I would love to have made this. It is wonderful.
