Delicious Doodles with Dies

Through the purple haze challenge for this week was...
Delicious doodles with dies

 The image I used was Just Purr-fect
The first thing I did was select the colours to use.
so I choose the following colours from my promarkers:
Hair: Tan, Gold, Pastel Yellow
Skin: Vanilla, satin, almond
Cat: Caramel, Cinnamon, Oatmeal & Pastel beige
leaf green for his eyes.
Dress: Powder, pastel & artic blue.
Lips: Antique rose
After I had coloured the image in
I mounted it on a piece of pale blue card
Then I selected :
a sheet of A4 brown card,
a sheet of A4 Trellis card (anna marie designs)
and die cut some tattered lace ivy dies from a sheet of dark green card.

I folded the A4 Brown card in half, and then cut a piece of the trellis
to fit to the front of the card. I then added the image on top of the trellis
using foam tape,
and then stuck the pieces of ivy on to the trellis.

I then looked at it and  realised I needed something else, so to finish it off
I looked for a sentiment and added it to the bottom left hand corner of the card.
