Kitty Bouquet


Hi everyone! I'm such a HUGE cat lover and this image really tugs at my heart strings. It makes me want to color an image for each of the cats I've had over the years. I've had a black tabby, orange tabby, gray tabby, all black cat with white paws and an all white cat. This image was colored in loving memory of my Tinker who recently passed away! She was a black tabby with brown undertones but I wasn't sure how to do stripes so I used a dark brown.


The gorgeous image is from the Kitty Bouquet stamp set by Doodle Pantry. I paired it with this cute patterned paper from the Deja Views Cat's Life Collection. To embellish the card I added blue organdy ribbon and blue buttons finished with DMC White.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
