ARTchix challenge: Here Kitty, Kitty

On Helga's blog the challenge this week was was to "add a cat to your artwork!" -Here's mine, close up . . . you can click on it for even more detail if you like.

Below is the full scan. My piece is 9"x 9" and created on top of a cool piece of scrapbook paper. I used lots of images from a new collage sheet I just received recently from ARTchix, called Birds on a wire. So much fun to play with! They are surrounding the Tom Cat I had stored away with my online images . . . a Vintage Ad for Old Tom Gin! It originally read "Boord & Son, London" but I used a word from her Next Words Collage Sheet that seemed to fit better, 'Birds'!
I love these challenges as they keep me in my creative habit. Thank YOU, Helga! ~This note added 8/12/09 ~ Lucky me! Helga chose my piece as one of her favorites! She's sending one of her great goody bags, cool. thanks again, helga!
