Seeing Double

Another quick post today as I'm still not feeling in full fettle but I did feel up to a little crafting this morning and it is LIMday afterall ;-)

Their challenge this week is a one layer card with a "double" image on it - so basically two of anything.  I've promised to make some cards for my local Cats Protection League which is where I got my cat from, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to start.


The image I've used is actually a single cat, so to get double I used my brayer to get a mirror image so the tail is on the opposite side.  I added a little colour with pencils and blended it with blending stumps and sansoder.  Finished with a little greeting in red to match their handsome bow ties.  The stamp is by personal impressions.

Catch you all later hopefully x
