ATC: Cats and Dogs

The lovely Vera Lane Studio Facebook Group have an April ATC swap. The theme is Cats and/or Dogs.
I love both, so hopefully my ATC reflects this.

I used three VLS sets for this ATC:
Cat and CrocksRescue Puppies and Willow and her birds.

Background: Snippets of digital paper (this set is free!!) from Polkadoodles was torn and glued to the ATC base. It was lightly gessoed to mute the colours. Spots of holographic glitter were applied to the sky with a Sakura Quickie glue pen. A hand-drawn border was added.

Images: The tree and birds are from the Willow and her birds set.  This particular cat from the Cat and Crocks set makes me smile, as you can see how mischievious he is. He reminds me of my own cat who recently went to kitty heaven - he was always up to no good! The dog from the Rescue Puppies set is just adorable...he looks so innocent and friendly.   All images were coloured using Spectrum Noir markers, then fussy cut.  The cat and dog have glossy accent eyes to make them shine. The tree was glued to the ATC and all other images were attached on foam pads to add dimension.

To finish, glitter sticker dots were added to the centre of some of the flowers.

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:

Hi Carole! What a fun ATC - I do love how the cat is looking a bit warily at the pooch :) Lovely work.

Great to see you in the Playground.

Such fun images, love it :o) Hugs, Lisa x

PS. One-layer digi cards are quite easy once you get used to positioning things. Just print onto a sheet of A4, then cut it down to size, score & fold. Try it on some scrap first to get the digi in the right position xx
