Something Completely Different!

Now that's what I like, something out of the ordinary and this week popped over to Artyjen's blog where she'd made a fabulous gothic arch for the SCD challenge which blew me away, so thought I'd have a go at the challenge.


The challenge for this month is to make gothic arches and this week the theme is CATS, so here I stamped an Anita's cat stamp and shaded it a bit with promarkers, then stamped a crafty individuals doorway coloured with TH inks and cut off the doors, then downloaded a mouse image, coloured it with promarkers and cut it out. A touch of glossy accents on the eyes finished the ATC off nicely.

Been busy this weekend!

Wow Michelle! Thanks for the fab thoughts!! Have to say Wow in the perspective on your arch....I'd also love a mouse door in the skirting like that!! The touch of gloss on the eyes is a fab touch too. :)

What a 'witty' little arch! Love the glossy accents on the cat's eyes and the little mouse is just sweet. I actually like mice more than cats so I'm glad the cat can't get at him, Lol.

I love this, Michelle. Your cat peeping through the doorway is just lovely and it looks like the mouse has got the last laugh. A brilliant take on the gothic arch.
