Cards...and cats!!

I got my inspiration for my entry to this weeks Stampotique Designers Challenge from a small cushion I keep on my bed. The challenge this week has been set by Joanne Wardle and is 'Clean and Simple'. I'd been having a bit of a sub-conscious think about what I could do, but have never been  inspired by making the bed before!!! First time for everything, I suppose!! Anyway, here's the cushion that started it all....


.....and here is my 'clean and simple' creation!


I started by stamping Kitty onto white card, then masked her and stamped Daisy Daisy over the top. I added a touch of colour to the flowers and grass with Dylusions spray inks. I finished off with the typed sentiment and, of course, a touch of doodling!!
Couldn't finish without letting you see the REAL inspiration.....

....Charlie.....

...and Daisy!
Thanks for looking...and for leaving your lovely comments! I really do appreciate them....

Hi Jayne, Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog. I got hooked on needle felting back in February at a workshop at Paddy's but have only just got my own kit. We are hoping to include it in our crafty mornings in Sale but I do understand that Paddy is also thinking of including it at her new Tuesday morning classes when she gets going so you could contact her before she closes her shop for good next week. Love your card and your beautiful cats. Chrisx
