My beloved cat, Duchess, died on April 28th. She was almost 17 years old and had lived with us for most of that time. She was truly my cat. She was the first to greet me most mornings and was usually found a few feet away from me.
This wall hanging with Large Feline Femme (Time to Stamp) from the fabulous Femmes Collection is a small tribute piece to her.
Large Feline Femme, available at I Brake for Stamps, was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts) and colored with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. I tried to match Duchess' coloration, but still missed. I'll figure it out one day. I did much better with the woman's blonde and grey hair, which kind of matches mine. Tears were added to the woman's face with a Clear Gelly Glaze pen (Sakura). A golden aura around the cat was added with Gold Spica Glitter pen. The image was fussy-cut and edged with a black marker.
The poem was found online, computer generated, and printed onto cardstock with my laser printer. The colored image panel was added below the quote and the panel was matted with black shimmery cardstock.
Champagne Dazzle VersaMark ink (Imagine Crafts) was sponged over a heart stencil. While the ink was wet, the hearts were brushed with shimmery palette chalk in gold and white. The image panel was adhered to the chalked panel, then matted with black cardstock.
Here's a close-up of the image panel.
