Here Kitty Kitty

I don't think this Fantastic Feline is going to get lost in the crowd. This was my take on the VLVFeb03 challenge. The twist for this challenge was to go Monochromatic (using shades from one color family) and one neutral could be used. Apparently Monochromatic is by far the hardest challenge that I have faced. I mean hello??? It's pink, how hard can it be??

Is it Monochromatically challenged or am I having a Lul in my creativity?? I have rationalized this thought and concluded that so many of us are coming down from the Christmas/Valentine Designer High. Pair that with cold weather and it is hard to think about those Spring and Easter cards that should be getting cranked out and Boom Creativity Recession!!! Perhaps it is working full time, playing both roles of Mommy and Daddy, busy kids' schedules and sheer exhaustion. Whatever it is and for whatever reason, all I know is that I don't like it one bit.

Now this Funny Feline reminds me of my beloved Cheshire Cat. FYI, my favorite cartoon character is the Cheshire Cat..... Rather than use the copics for this project, I chose to water color. The flower embellishments were created by cutting individual flowers from a flower ribbon. I simply cut the flowers off and adhered them using a small brad in the center. I used the scalloped circle punch to created the tag. I also used a small flower stamp to randomnly stamp the small flowers.

I will upload Challenge #4 tomorrow. There is still time to participate in this challenge. All submissions are due on the 27th in order to be entered to win the entire line of new stamps sets by Verve.

Fabulous design, Justine. I love your Berry Sorbet cat and the fact that you used a partial stamped image and completed the design with embellishments. It really shows the versatility of S2G stamps.
