Welcome to my creative space!
My dear sister lost her beloved kitty recently. She had Trixie for 18 years, and she was a special part of her family. I created this special sympathy card for her featuring ScrapBerry's A Furry Little Story Collection. The tiger striped kitten looks just like Trixie and so perfect for this card.
This sweet cluster includes ScrapBerry's Peach Gardenia, Blue & White Cherry Blossoms, Skeleton Leaves, Flair Button, Winds of Travel Clock, White Shabby Ribbon which I colored, and a sentiment stamped with the Elegy Precious Moments set.
Of course I had to add mixed media textures. I used the gorgeous Art Anthology Keyhole Stencil with Prima Light Paste to create texture, then added colors pulled from the sweet pillow and crown using Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Mists. Microbeads, Prills, and Mica Flakes are added around the cluster for additional texture.
The kitten looks like she is playfully batting at something, so I added this Elegy Polymer Butterfly which I colored with several shades of creamy Prima Finnabair art wax.
Here's a little tip. I always brush my background papers with clear gesso - mostly to reduce warping. Here's another great benefit. When spritzing color mist, I covered the little kitty in teal. Not a great color for a cat, but since I had brushed over her with clear gesso, I was able to use a damp paper towel to dab off all of the teal color to save my project.
