You're Purrfect - The Outlawz April "Progressive Freebie"

This card was made for The Outlawz April Progressive Freebie using the digital image from Sheepski Designs, Anne's Digital Arts.  Printed 2 images of Virgo, using Copic alcohol-based pens colored the first one in full and fussy-cut.  The second image...the floral lei and butterfly were colored, fussy-cut and adhered with 3D thin foam tape to the first image for dimension. Die cut the floral bouquet in two different design papers and another one using white cardstock to piece the green stems and yellow flowers on the white cardstock layer and adhered directly to the blue background design paper.  Added Virgo to the front of the flowers with thin foam sheet, die cut the grass and pieced around Virgo.  Sentiment added on grass using Pewter ink.

After adding Virgo it appeared the white was too noticeable around his whiskers because of my fussy-cut so I took some Sea Glass ink and watercolored inbetween the whiskers and then took the copic YG23 and put a line where the stem was...then I was happy with it.  Virgo is liking his spring time setting.  

For the inside of the card, die cut another floral and placed in the bottom corner, and both the inside and the small photos show the dimension of the fussy-cuts.

This card - and Virgo, the cat - is so realistic looking. Virgo looks like he is just posing on the card temporarily. The ring of flowers around his neck is a perfect addition to complement the other flowers. Colouring/shading is fantastic.

Just lovely, Sue! The kitty is colored and blended beautifully, and I really like those polka dotted flowers that match the background layered paper!
