This stunning image from Ching-Chiu Kuik is called Christmas Venice Night. I've coloured it before in blue and green (for my sister in-laws birthday) but this time I've gone for just blues. I've done this with ProMarkers. To make the bight blue stand out more I used a blender pen which takes some of the colour out and given it this beautiful effect as you can see below.
The image has been cut out with a Spellbinders die and edged with Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink, mainly because I wanted the total white look to be subdued slightly. I've also added some white gel pen to the image for the centre of the flowers and the cat's mask.
The papers I've used are from Our Daily Bread, Santoro Gorjuss and Lili of the Valley. I've made it a total cat card with the fish paper in the background and the brass bird cage charm :)
The black lace is from The Ribbon Girl, the flowers from Live and Love Crafts and Wild Orchid Crafts.
The blue spotted ribbon which is tied in a double bow I got from Lili of the Valley when they were doing Little Bags of Ribbon. The sentiment is from a Lili of the Valley art pad and the rhine stones are from my stash.
A birthday card for cat lovers definitely!
