And Now.......

for my version......... it's not that I don't like the girlies, I do very much but I wanted to do my own thing and what do I like?......birds of course and cats.



I couldn't figure a way of doing mouths so I've done without.... ( after everything I've said about mouthless stamps too!)
The cat was a nice simple image to create in paper...

so was the bird.. I'm not to good with the black pen outline thing either, it's a bit too uncontrolled for me. There's the neat freak again



I decided to add some bling to each piece as a kind of signature...hopefully these will make it to the Gallery
I have to say a huge thank you to Christy Tomlinson for the great class and the inspiration without which I wouldn't have done these.

These are fab! The cats don't look mouthless, maybe just a bit sulky (as only cats can be!). Love the way you've taken the inspiration and made it your own.

These canvases are awesome. I'm not even a cat lover but I really like these catty pieces of artwork. Love the bird one too of course. I really like how you have done these backgrounds, great texture and dimension, and yet it all flows so well. I like the sutleties (sp?) of the background edges. Truly beautiful work!! Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

these are all fab! Love the cats and the bird. I too don't like mouth-less stamps but you don't really notice it with the cats. Love the squiggles on the bird.
