The Lookout

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme “Anything With A Tail”. The team have created a bunch of beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile. We have also a fun prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org.

I decided on a Penny Black stamp with an adorable cat for this card. I stamped the brick wall with grey ink and layer this on blue card-stock to frame the brick wall. I coloured the image with watercolour pencils, cut it out and layered it on the brick wall background. The pot-plant was stamped twice, which I also fussy cut and added with mirror tape for dimension.. To add more interest and colour I added a die-cut willow branch. I then added a three layer die cut sentiment to finish off .

I entered my card in the following challenges:

    Fabulous details, Amelia. Love the leaves and the geranium pot added to the window and the kitty is super cute. I have that background stamp too and love the texture it adds.

    Could there be anything cuter than this happy and adorable fat cat? I think not. He is just what is needed and I love his pink cheeks.

    This kitty looks quite content perched on the window sill smiling at the beautiful flowers. The colors on this card are perfectly complimentary to one another. Beautiful scene, Amelia.
