Fur and Feather


Whoops just noticed how crooked the card is! Of course its not got my ruler out and measured for the lines round the card before drawing them in.
I think Mr Mojo has left the building once again not helpful at all especially with the challenge on Less Is More, Fur and Feathers thast fine but one layer.
It would have been easy to use one of my cute images one a white page or would it. Possibly I would be hyperventilating every pencil I used in case I went over the lines and had to start again.
So I found these Birds on a Wire on a Tim Holtz clear set and the cat was a freebie possibly from the Craft Stamper and then I drew a couple of lines, the first time above and below the birds with the idea they were on those wires on poles forget what they're called now. Then realised that the birds probably wouldn't be sitting in the middle but on the top. So I had to start again, I drew a few dots and square to look like edge of  the poles not that worked and then stamped the cat watching them. Pretty rubbish but at least I tried.

Hi Debby - I think your card is fab and I love the design...... you are too hard on yourself! Hugs x x

What's this pick on myself day!
I can't see a crooked cat...I totally understand making little goof like the birds on a wire but seriously like we would even notice that. You must be striving for the Olympic card games, LOL.
I love silhouettes. CAS and gorgeous, you have a great imagination. Thanks for the tip on the scissors, may I ask which brand you use?

I don't think it's rubbish Debby, I like it a lot! You did not choose either, fur or feather but used both in the card, that's pretty ingenious :)

Totally not rubbish - you're far too hard on yourself! If that cat could reach those birdies, it certainly would make his day!

Don't know what you are worrying about, I think it's a great card. The cat eyeing up the birds is a fab idea ... and you got both fur and feathers in too :) Elizabeth x

Grenouille Greetings said...

And I love this combo of images. There is something a bit naughty about the sentiment - I think the cat has designs on bird pie for dinner! Hugs, Lesley
