The Window Cat

Most of you probably know I own a grey cat called Femo.  Femo just loves to sit on the window ledge looking out - especially when it's dark for some strange reason!

Anyway, when I saw this Meljen cat image I immediately thought of Femo and obviously had to get it!  The rest of the card is made up of a brickwork embossed background made using a Tim Holtz folder and the window is glazed with acetate.


I raised the window off the brick work, then further raised the cat for a bit of depth to my card.
