* Vera Lane Studio: The Love of A Cat


I hope you're having better weather than us! This last week was horrible - it rained everyday, almost non-stop, and the temperatures are unseasonably low. Here's hoping for a better week ahead!

Today at Vera Lane Studio we have a new digi set release. It a pair of very cool cats! The set is called Love of a Cat and there are two stylish kitty cats and a sentiment.

I made two cards - one with each cat. Here is the first:

The cat was coloured with Copics and fussy cut. Some white highlights were added. The background is acrylic paint applied with a brayer. The left hand side was stamped and heat embossed with white powder whilst the right side has a few stamped dots. The edge of the background was inked with Picked Raspberry, then black inks.
Some torn washi grounds the cat which was popped on foam tape. The sentiment was cut into strips, inked in black and glued directly onto the background.

The second card is here:

This cat reminds me of a big cat - I suppose the spots suggest a cheetah or a leopard, but the poem Tyger, Tyger Burning Bright also comes to mind, so I gave him a leafy background to hide within.
The cat is coloured with Copics and popped onto a stencilled background. Olive Green, Leaf Green, orange and gold acrylic paints were blended with a sponge through a leafy stencil. The cat is grounded with washi tape and is attached on foam tape. The edge of the background is inked in black and also matted with black card.
