Happy Birthday Cat!

This one is so far out of my comfort zone, you wouldn’t believe. Or maybe you will, as you can see the quality of my colouring. But be gentle, I’m a newbie! I don’t normally do cute and I don’t do colouring!

A cute stamp set (free from a magazine years ago!) with watercolour pencils in blue, grey and yellow and sentiments from Uniko and Papermania, in Memento black and fossilised amber Distress Oxide.

I was inspired out of my comfort zone by a few challenges:

Muse #266 – with Tracey’s sweet card to CASE


The colours at Less is More #371

and of course CAS on Friday’s challenge #132 to use a cute stamp 🙂

Perhaps it will be popular in my charity box with the cat-lovers.

Haiku (a loved one’s had an eye op):

Cover your eyes, dear.
Rest, as they heal, and know that
You colour my world

    Well you wouldn’t know that you were out of your comfort zone Helen. I think your sweet Cat is coloured just right and your colour chemistry is just right. The pop of the multicoloured sentiment is a great finish. Thank you for sharing with us at Muse this week!
