Cat on the Moon

I've used a Penny Black cat stamp on today's card called 'Cat on the Moon'...it's not a stamp I often use, so I thought that I should show him some love! I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then picked some My Mind's Eye papers (from the 'Breeze' pad) to go with him. I added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen, and a Paula Pascual sentiment stamped on to a die cut speech bubble (cut using a Craft Asylum/Sizzix Thinlits die). I also added some sparkle to the moon and stars on the image using a Wink of Stella pen...but I couldn't get it to show in the photographs.
