I've done quite a few cards in my post-exam crafting explosion, two of them featuring furry kittens. It's the same stitching pattern in both, but as they're stitched with different materials and arranged in a different way, the outcome is quite un-comparable.
First, a kitty stitched with regular cross-stitch yarn and kept brown-in-brown overall:
The fur is made in transitioning brown shades and therefore looks more alive, matching the swirly background. To fill the empty space between the fur hair and add some colour to the eyes and snout, I used colour pencils.
To complete the card, I added a couple of rhinestones, a dark brown background paper and a banner saying "All you need is love and a cat..."
The quote is from scribblesdesigns and I bet any cat lover out there knows how true this is ;)
p.s.: Let this card also remind you of the current fadengrafik-challenge: stitched image. There's still enough time to play along, so do join the fun!
