All you need is Love - and a Cat!

Hello and meow! Happy Monday and happy February! I had so much fun putting this project together. As an official crazy cat lady, I thought it was only appropriate to make one of these!

I painted the frame black then heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder to create a shiny enamel-like finish; I liked the way the black set off the colours in the images (which come from Graphic 45's Raining Cats and Dogs collection)

The chipboard cat that is using the frame as a scratching posts (like my cats use my furniture for...sigh...) was painted black then covered with black flocking for a furry effect.

The tray went together easily once I had all my images and papers placed where I wanted them. I then added a few fussy cut bits and pieces from the paper for dimension and detail.

You could easily incorporate photos into this project as well. With eight cats in my house, I just couldn't choose who to showcase here though I certainly wouldn't want anyone to feel left out! There is also a dog-themed tray in the Gypsy Soul store so whatever your furry friend preference is, I'm sure you could create something wonderful with one of these. Have yourself a purr-fect week!
