A card I made for my bff =) That's the girl I'm always trying to impress and it takes me a lot of time to make a proper card for her.
This year it's a card with a cat. Why cat?.. Frankly speaking the private life of my girlfriend isn't going very well, so her manicure artist thought of a trick for her: every nail art she gets has a tiny white male-cat on her little finger =) And she's going to have him until a proper male appears in her life.
I picked up this topic and wanted to make a bigger white cat - maybe he will help her to attract a nice man?..
That's the card itself:
The cat is completed designed by me =) When I was making my "tribal jewelry" I browsed some sites devoted to Native American art, and found a beautiful example...
Be sure to check out THIS LINK. Paper sculptures. Unfortunatelly, I don't know who the author is - if someone knows, let me know, pleeeeease!!! I was wowed by the gorgeous feather and hair work, and I knew I had to try something alike. Well, my work is very poor in comparison to those pieces of art, but I didn't try to copy it, just had some fun with paper hair technique.
Cat is paper pieced - it consists of 10 parts, I used scissors and some water to shape the pieces. How do you like my cat's fur? =) His eyes and nose are covered with glossy accent for some shine and dimension.
Cat stays on a silver plate surrounded with the seed bead frame. Plus some ribbons - white, shiny blue and silver, embellished with pearls. A few butterflies - thanks to Pastila for these punched wings ;)
The mat under the cat is processed with my CraftRobo - paws pattern, I glued this mat on little paper stacks so that it's obvious that the paw prints are cut out as they provide fine shadows.
And the card is the first easel-card I made.
That's the way it looks when opened:
With a sentiment plate saying "Happy birthday!" with punched and embossed corners.
For this card I used color combo from Colour create - Challenge 73? blue, grey and white.
which seemed to be too masculine at first, but then I remembered that blue is my bff's fave color, so I stuck to this scheme!
And a sketch by Арт-Уголок: Открытка №34 "В скобках"
The sketch is rotated 90 degrees, instead of dots I have paws and instead of flowers and buttons - a few butterflies.
Скетч повернула на 90 градусов, точки заменила лапками, а цветочки и пуговички - бабочками.
Having some ribbons I'm entering a Dream Valley Challenge #10 again - ribbons =)
Thanks for looking!
