Feline Fine at That's Crafty! Challenge Blog

Hello all, I hope you're all surviving the current heatwave which I have to say is great in some ways and not so in others especially when I have to go to work!
It's time for a new challenge over at That's Crafty! Challenge Blog and our theme for the next fortnight is Feline Fine so we'd like to see your creations with cats on.
I, of course, made something with my favourite feline, Bentley. Hope you like my tag.

I used the largest white/greyboard tag from That's Crafty! range of surfaces to alter and covered it with a mix of blue, green and yellow acrylic paints. I then used the paw prints Dinky stencil to add a pattern with a mix of 2 shades of grey paint.
I then stamped Bentley on mixed media paper with Archival black ink and coloured him with paints and pencils, aiming for a ginger tom look. I cut him out and glued him to the tag, not cutting out his whiskers but extending them out with a black Sharpie pen.
I stamped some text in the spaces left with Archival watering can ink and then decided it was a bit too strong so I dry brushed white gesso over everything to tone it down a little.
I finished off with some Tim Holtz Big Chat stickers and a scrap of ribbon tied at the top.

There's a great prize if you enter and it's randomly drawn to so everyone is in for a chance.
See you later.
Fliss xx
