Father's Day.


Not the card I started out to make. It should have been a potting shed with a cat in the window!!! I know , I know nothing like it you say.
 I started last night  to colour the image using promarkers and they bled , (not a lot but enough to show and I used the right paper in the printer too). Next  I printed off another  shed and used my water colour pencils and made a mess of it so in desperation ( as I needed to put the card  in the  post  by today) and 4 hours later made the one below. The backing paper I have used really lends itself to the little cat blocks which I did colour in using promarkers. Ribbon, card and button are from my stash. I love this stamp which is made by Inca and is called Cat Blocks. It prints a square of nine different cats in cute poses which you could leave as is but I like to cut them up into ones, two's and three's. Hubby stopped by my desk this morning and saw the discarded shed and said "Nice beach hut"!!! In the cold light of day the shed/hut is not that bad now it has dried so it will go in my reject box to see another day.



In the meanwhile I am entering this into the following challenges.
