I've been having a play with one of my Visible Image stamps this week called Curious Cats.  I love most animals but especially cats and have three cats - a black one, a grey and white one and a ginger female which is very rare - she decided to make an appearance on my card today as the colours I chose seem to be her colours.  I used to be a fosterer for our local cat's protection and my ginger girl came in to the pens as a stray and she was so lovely I had to keep her for myself! 

I started out with stamping the image of the cat's face with some Ranger Archival Ink in black.  I used some Distress Inks and an aqua water pen to add the stripes - I used Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade, Ground Espresso and Fossilised Amber for her eyes.  I also added some Glossy Accents to the eyes to give them sparkle.  

I double stamped the sentiment in both black and Spiced Marmalade.

I layered it onto orange and black cardstock.  

I'm adding this into the following challenges:

Chocolate Baroque - I Love.... cats
Allsorts Challenge - Use Yellow
Addicted to CAS - animal - I'm not sure if this is CAS enough
Just Us Girls - Animal

I'm delighted to have been chosen in the top 3 of Cupcake Inspirations
