Feline Better?

Welcome

This will be a short post as 1) this card is very CAS and 2) I have had to use a phone photo as my camera and computer are not being cooperative, so the detail photos I took are nowhere to be found!

There is no doubt this has been inspired by one of the Queens of CAS, Miss Ellenor


I started with a RAK sent to me by the wonderful Kelly, The Sandcastle Stamper 
being the Feline Good stamp and die set by The Project Bin.

I stamped and cut the fat cat of the set on a snippet of card, and coloured him with chalks.  Next I stamped the sentiment, and added some grey chalk to ground the cat.   To add some subtle dimension I added two layers of card under the cat before positioning him.  The orange twine, which tied the pretty packaging the set came in, was tied across the top to finish.

I am linking this to:
