Happy Monday crafty people! I hope you had a fab weekend. We were celebrating the Springbok’s win yesterday at the Rugby World Cup and looking forward to the semi finals next weekend! In the mean time Janis over at Her Peaceful Garden is hosting the fifth Cat Lovers Hop and I’m excited to be joining in for the first time!
As a proud crazy cat lady I just had to join in! My first project for the week is inspired by our eldest cat, Pepper who is 17 years old but very young at heart!
I used the Furry Friends stamp set from Rare Earth which I was lucky to win a few months ago in a Facebook competition. There is a lovely selection of cats and sentiments on this set. I chose this cute cat peeking around the corner as it always reminds me of Pepper. I stamped him using black ink and then used distress ink in pumice stone and antique linen with a water brush to add colour to his fur. I used a very watered down broken china for his eyes. To finish off I used black and white gel pens to add a few details to the eyes and nose.
I hope that you like my first cat themed project of the week! Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog and I hope that you will check out the hop via Janis’s blog posts this week.
