It's Saturday which means another fab sketch from

Jen's gone and done it again with another rectangle. It's a fab sketch though. Just right for the sentiment on the inside of my card to read "You're a Star". For those of you who read my blog occasionally you may know that I have a cat whom I love to the moon and back. Whenever I go away, his Auntie Pauline looks after him and I sometimes need a card and gift from my cat to thank her. Aside from the card we gave her with a mouse on it (because kitty had left one in the hall for her), these thank you cards always have an image of a cat on them and the cat is always coloured black because that's the colour of mine. When I saw this fab image from Milk Coffee called Tiffany in Victorian Gown (which you can find here), I knew I had to use her for one of kitty's thank you cards.
Black cats are extraordinarily hard to colour! I have to confess that in the original Milk Coffee image, the cat is looking downwards so that the top of his head was more visible that his face and because it was so difficult to colour the head in black without obscuring his face altogether, I actually popped a photo of my cat's face on the drawn body and just coloured the body. So this is my cat held in the arms of this gorgeous girl.
My DP is K&Co. I cut the stars with my Cricut and the "thankful" is a PTI die. I wish I had inked it around the edges before sticking it down. I'll do that next time I use it! Tiffany is coloured in Copics, Promarkers and a Letraset Tria with a little Prima pencil applied to highlight the white in her ribbons. And here is Jen's fab sketch:
Don't forget to go for a visit to my teamies and share some love. It would be particularly great if you would share some love with Anat (tshupile) whom I chose to be our guest designer in March. She has done a wonderful job every week and her card this week, using the same image (with the original face of the cat) outshines mine by a mile! And do come and play along with us.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Milk Coffee - anything but square (a rectangle is not a square!)
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Girly
And just before I go, I thought I'd share a couple of pictures of an interesting bird who has appeared in my back garden on two different days this week:
Happy Easter Everyone!
Roast Pheasant for lunch?
