FSC Time And Favourite Things

 For this month’s challenge FSC wants to see Sound Of Music – My Favourite Things or Use Your Favourite Stamp which Leanne picked as her theme.

Raindrops on roses
And whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favourite things

You can either pick something from the verse above or use your favourite stamp, I chose Whiskers on Kittens.

Had so much fun colouring the kitten with water colour pencils plus the background has been created using the same colours.

Had to take care with the colouring plus how much water was added as I actually did everything on the card front itself.  This was an achievement as the card wasn’t water coloured stock plus there was a risk of pitting if I added too much.


Very unusual for me but I have only used two stamps on my card.   The kitten is a discontinued one called ‘Sitting Pretty’ and the quote comes from a Stampers Anonymous set … Urban Tapestry.

Would really love it if you hopped on over to see all the DT’s work as they are simply stunning.  Also don’t forget that the winner of this challenge has $20 to choose anything they like from Flonz’s store.

    You are braver than me Shirl as I always shy away from stamping onto the card itself but this turned out beautifully and the cat is coloured to perfection.

    Enjoy the sunshine today.

    Oh my gosh!!! This looks fantastic – I especially love the colouring of that purdy pussy cat. It has brought the stamp to life and looks absolutely beautiful.

    This is a job well done Shirl and that’s one of the cutest kittens ever! Great choice of colours and blending and I love the sentiment too. Crafty hugs, Sandra x

    Shirl, this is absolutely soul-fetching. The colors – not only vibrant and beautiful in their own right, also present a fantasy of sorts in your darling kitten (LOVE LOVE LOVE the image! How could it ever be retired?)

    More than anything, it is the sentiment that captivates me. Long ago (LOL) in a land far, far away, before I realized 99% of the people don’t like using analogies or philosophies, I used to say that I thrived in the desert, that I loved being in the wilderness, and I always marveled at the beauties (even those deep, dark things we do not want to witness truthfully) found when traveling between the oases of my life. I thrive therein, and love delving into the unknown, following no map, using no guide. Your sentiment reminds me of these journeys I continue to silently take. Though silent, they are, nevertheless, still incredibly marvelous to me. LOVE your amazing creation in every way, Shirl.
