Feline Christmas

The Christmas Kickstart Challenge this time is Feline Christmas and after some thought I decided that as I had nothing specifically feline and Christmas I would combine a very old Christmas stamp (some 20 years old) with a couple of stray die cut cats which were sitting on my desk.  The stamp is a wood mounted one - remember those?? - which I've certainly not used for a good while and it was coloured with watercolour Zig pens before die cutting the stitched rectangle, simply adding the two black cats.  Some seasonal background and a greeting finishes off this simple card which will go into the box for later this year.

  1. This is gorgeous and works beautifully! I always love to delve into my box of older stamps and rediscover past favourites. Thanks so much for playing again at The Christmas Kickstart Challenge, Jo x

  2. It's purr-fect! Your creative addition of the kitty die cuts look very natural around the lamp post. Lovely coloring and pretty background paper!
    Thanks so much for sharing your Festive Feline at the Christmas Kickstart Challenge!!
