A few challenges

This is different from the normal cards I make....not usually with animals but Debs sent me some stamped LOTV images to use and I just love them...thanks Debs. The image has been coloured with copics and layered onto an embossed circle....looks like tiger effect which I thought kind of matched the little pussy cat!!....which I then distressed with ink, the paper I had in my stash....finished off with ribbon, bow and tag. I have entered the challenges below.

LOTV - sketch

Quixotic challenge - embossing

Totally Papercrafts - monochromatic(shaes of brown)

Stamp Something - recipe - ribbon, bow and tag

Hi Fi,
Aw these LOTV images are so sweet. I have a few toppers and a couple of stamped images from the lovely Lynsey, they are a lovley stamp. I don't do many animals, but when I see others have used them I tend to have a go with the few I have. This cat is lovely. It oculd be used for get well, sorry, thank you, Birthday loads of things...Debbiexx

Hi FI! I'm back!
WOW you have been so busy! All your cards are gorgeous (as always!) I'm so sorry i can't comment on them all individually but I'm up to my neck in post holiday mess and shouldn't be blogging really! I really love this little cat isn't he gorgeous?! I can never get over how neat you cut out, if that had been my attempt the poor kitty would have lost his whiskers!

Lovely CAS card. Great tones and your use of the embossing folder with this image is very clever. I have that folder. Now I just need the image! Warmest wishes, Lesley
