Parrot and Pussycat

 I've been playing with a fun NBUS stamp set that I won in last year's Cat Lovers Blog Hop. 

Sorry about the grey looking background, I'm having a lot of trouble with the white balance on my camera at the moment and although I've done what I can to edit it to a true white, it's refusing to play ball. 

I used the stamps to construct the scene - all the elements are separate so it's a very versatile set. Then I coloured it using Promarkers. The colours I chose for the cat are based on a lovely little cat ornament my grandma bought me when I was a little girl, about 5 years old. We went shopping in the Burlington Arcade on Lord Street in Southport and I fell in love with it. I suspect my Mum still has it in her loft somewhere. 

The sentiment, also from the set, is perfect for an anniversary card for cat lovers. You don't often see a cat and a bird in love, but the card would be great for a "chalk and cheese" couple.
