Cute Kitty

Isn't this cute kitten image from Karen Middleton just adorable? :)
It's called Moon Heart and you can buy it in either digi or red rubber format from the Sweet Pea Stamps store. I used the digi version and coloured the cat and the hearts in with my Promarkers:
I had the idea to have the moon all shimmery and shiny so instead of colouring it in, I painted Flitter Glu onto the moon shape and then covered it in Indigo Blu Mega Flake (in Autumn Blaze) and used Scoochy Foam to buff away the excess, leaving me with a lovely metallic, shimmery moon:
I love the way this flake changes colour as you tilt it, from shimmery gold to a more reddish, bronzey shade:
I matted the finished image onto gold mirri card and covered my card blank with pretty pink paper, also matted onto gold mirri card. To finish things off I made a couple of flourishes using pink gemstones (I didn't have any pre-made flourishes that fitted what I wanted so I hand drew a couple of flourishes onto the card using pencil and covered them over with little pink gems) and added some pink blossoms.
I think this would make a lovely Valentine's card. :)
