Forever Friend

Hello all! I"m going to do a quick post as I've been working on this card off and on all week and was about to head to bed when I realized I was going to have to post this first. Oh' the joys of different time zones! Anyway, over at TOMIC this past week they've had a photo inspiration and a sketch and this...



 ... is what I came up with to go along. The photo they had up was basically a room with all white antique furnishings and a lady and her cat. To me that translated into vintage/ shabby chic...hope I pulled it off :) and then of course the sketch which I turned sideways but is otherwise the same.


I chose this image because I know cat people tend to have them for life and this Tilda reminds me of little-bo-peep and her lamb who were also "forever friends" as I like to call them. The grass is colored with copics and sadly took quite a long time,lol and the clouds are copics as well. Also, you can't tell all that well in the photo but I put some yelloish chalk on the clouds afterward to give it a more vintage feel.

Alright, I need to get to bed and I have a few more photos of this, but I will post them tomorrow after church. Hope you all are having a wonderful day!

Thanks for stopping by!
