JAI #610 Arty Cat Sympathy


Hello and welcome!! It's Friday and the end of the first week of the school holidays here in Victoria. The weather has been quite cold and rather wet. It is so good that the days have slowly begun to get longer again in the hope that Spring will come soon.

It's a new Challenge week at Just Add Ink and Kerry has provided us with this fun Inspiration photo to help inspire our crafting for the week. The design team have created some really gorgeous cards to inspire you so do take a peek and I'd love to see your card if you choose to join us!

I'll guess that a number of you missed the little cat in the top, middle photo of the Inspiration photo?
Friends of mine lost their beloved older cat recently and so I'd thought I'd use this challenge to reach out to them. Miss B lived an amazing life and is greatly missed.

The cat is from a retired set called Nine Lives. The cat's owners are artists and quite like a mix of styles. So I used the colourful, hand painted look of the papers as a background and stamped onto it using a mix of Momento and Smokey Slate inks. The circle holes were cut using the Stitched Shapes Dies.

Hopefully this card will bring some comfort to it's recipients. Pet sympathy cards are always so hard to know what to create but in the end, just recognising the special pets is what matters.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you will pop on over to Just Add Ink and be inspired to join in this fun challenge with us.
