Ballerina Kitty 3 by Aurora Wings

Hello friends!  The 2021 Cat Lovers Hop is going on right now on Her Peaceful Garden  It ends on October 30 so there is still time to join in.  So, what are you waiting for?  

I am so excited to join the Hop this time.  For my card, I have selected the gorgeous "Ballerina Kitty 3" image by Aurora Wings.  What a delightful and sweet kitty!  I coloured her up with Copics and Polychromos.  

I made my own template for the piano keys, and the black keys are raised with 3-D foam.  It took a long time to create but I am very happy with the result.  The orange flower is handmade.

Thank you for taking the time to visit and I hope to see you again.  Have a wonderful day.  Hugs, Lori xx
