Cats & Dogs

Good Morning!  Are you cat or a dog lover?  I'm sharing two cards today with one of each on so nobody feels left out.  The first is a decoupage cat, I think the image is by Lesley Ivory, I know I have some of her images in my stash. I think she is an incredible artist, the images are so real.  I once did a jigsaw featuring one of her paintings, I used to be a jigsaw volunteer for Oxfam.  I have alternated between tartan and black card layers and decoupaged the image.  I have fixed the topper using tiny red and copper coloured brads, and added a peel-off sentiment.

And so the dog people don't feel left out, here is my iris folded Collie.  I found the outline online and used black and white papers from my stash.  I have given him a felt ear and tail, a ribbon for his collar and string for the lead.  I have added the detail on the face with fine liner pen, stamped footprints and bones and added a peel-off sentiment.

In case your wondering, I love cats and dogs!  This is my current furry friend, Fergus.  You can vote for this photo in the Newfoundland Photography Contest on Facebook and you can follow Fergus' adventures on his own blog.

Creative Blessings. x
