Backstory: My husband (Mark) and I don't have kids (and won't be having any in the future either) so we give all of our love and attention and absolutely dote on our cats (okay, maybe me more so than Mark). For years now, as a joke, we have gotten each other Mother's and Father's Day gifts 'from the cats', usually accompanied by a funny email or note that the cats made us write, etc. (Do you see where I'm going with this yet?)
So the Sunday before last was Father's Day and the cats commissioned this card:
I printed the kitty from the 'Be Mine' digi by Softpencil (retired) twice onto Canson cardstock and I coloured them in with a warm grey Copic marker. If you've seen the photos I've posted of Abby before you will note that I left a diamond shape white on the right hand kitty's forehead as well as her paws to represent her markings. Toby (on the left) is completely grey so he didn't get any white spots, though he does have a few white hairs growing here and there these days - a kitty version of going grey I suppose.
I attached a strip of Bazzil cardstock to the front of the card (Canson) and used foam dots to pop the cats on top of the strip to make it look like they're peeking over a wall. I then stamped the sentiment from Sophie's Sentiments by Lawn Fawn in Versafine Black Onyx ink.
Thanks so much for looking, and for reading the little story behind the card. I'll be back tomorrow with another one!
