I stamped a cat image and water coloured it in, then matted it onto plain and patterened papers. I added a circular message and some flowers to finish it off.
I made my page using a photo of Poppy, blue flowers, lace, buttons and blue and white cardstock
For my card I have used an image from a Tuscan Rose CD. This has been layered and mounted onto a background of Basic Grey paper that has been grunged up a little and stamped with Autumn Leaves Flourish stamps. Embellished with a photo corner, gems and a silk flower that has been folded and tucked under the corner of the topper.
I started by covering the inch card with paper then I stamped the cat and fish onto plain paper and cut them out! I went around the edges with a silver Krylon pen and wrote meow down the edge with a black pen. Two diamonds finish it off!!( no they aren't really diamonds!)
I paper pieced my cat with K & Co papers and defined areas with distress inks. I used matching K & Co papers for the background and added some Prima flowers for decoration.
