 Hello and welcome to the May challenge at Country View Challenges!

The theme this month is "Cats & Dogs", hosted by my talented teamy Rachel.

I really like dogs, but my heart belongs to cats. I always had one or more cats in my life from childhood until now and I really love these confident, independent but also clingy creatures.

And of course I made a card with a cat.

For this card I used a elder stamp from LaBlanche - it was a stamp set with cats, a dog and a pony.
This one is so very adorable, I really love, how detailed and lifelike it is!

First I stamped the cat face on my card topper and drew a circle with a pencil around the face. Then I grabbed DI kitsch flamingo, milled lavender and speckled egg and blended the inks with a domed foam applicator. For more interest I used a stencil and went over it with the same colour of the background. Some water drops completed the background.

Next I stamped some paw prints with DI brushed corduroy and darkend the edges of my paper with it too. Then I samped the lovely cat again and coloured it with DI (brushed corduroy again), gave her green eyes and made some highlight with a white gel pen. I cut it out in a circle. Lastly I stamped the sentiment with black Archival ink, matted the focal point and the sentiment onto cardboard for some dimension. Then I glued both onto my card topper, alining with the cat underneath.

The sentiment is in German an it says:

Not all Angels have wings,
some have whiskers.

That´s it for today, I hope you will find time to join in with our challenge this month, as you know, you can win a 20 £ voucher for the shop!

Well, and now I don´t want to introduce you my two beloved furr babies Lucy and Oskar:
