Release Day for Purrfect Friends - A Kitty Set from Cornish Heritage Farms


Today Cornish Heritage Farms releases a new cat lover's stamp set called Purrfect Friends.  I had so much fun with this one, since my constant crafting companion is my 18-year-old fluffy tortoise shell kitty!  I think the image above is perfect for any little person's celebration.  I colored the image with Copics, added some soft and sweet papers and vintage trims, and distressed every piece.  The flower centers are regular white pearls that I colored with Copics (another reason I'm so addicted to my Copics....).

The next piece I made started out as a card, but ended up as a little hanging for my scrap room.  It looked so much like my own kitty, I decided to keep it for myself. :)  I used the paw print that comes with the set to embellish the polka-dotted patterned paper I used in the background.  I used Copics again for this image.  For more samples, check out the CHF Creative Blog and the Gallery at CHF.

I'll leave you with a picture of my model... the one I used when determining the coloring for my last image.  She can usually be found sitting behind me in my chair as I work.  Very warm and snuggley, I tell ya! :)

You cat clearly expects and receives the respect due to her kind. The portrait of her is lovely but it is the top card that really delights me, it puts me in mind of Betrix Potter drawings. Next time one of my imps brings in a bird that i have to rescue and release I'll show them the drawing!

Seriously beautiful work.

My 19 year old tortie (Fancy) usually tries to sit on my table, her second choice is my lap until I move to much for her to nap - so I have a coushioned stool that sits next to me just for her. I have had the cat face stamp from CHF for a long time now - I did a plaque with both my old ones on it just after I lost Fancys buddy Cochiese.
Love both the plaque and the card!!!
