A very special cat

Today's post is, unusually for me, a scrapbook page, made using the Lelli-Bot Crafts Moggies stamp set and Moggies and Doggies Fullworks kit. When I saw the kit, I was reminded of me and my husband's first cat, Jarvis, who was a very special cat. This inspired me to make this page.

I started by stamping the Moggies cat stamp onto watercolour card, using Coffee Archival ink, and coloured it using a Vintage Photo distress marker and a wet brush. I cut this out when dry. I layered the papers, distressing the edges with a Vintage Photo distress ink pad. I added my picture and some twine and charms from the Fullworks kit. I finished off by stamping some paw prints from the Moggies stamp set and adding the stanped cat.

I'm really pleased with the end result- I really love these papers and the fact they are 8x8 makes them great for scrapbooking. It was also a really emotional project for me and will find a special place in our home.

I would like to enter this project for the following challenges:

Thank you for visiting today, I appreciate all of your lovely comments. Cathy x
