Here Kitty, Kitty

January Artist Trading Card - Here Kitty, Kitty

I started with a stamp of cat features and used chalk pastel to create the head.

More chalk pastel for the shoulders and a green background.

Next I used rubber stamps of different overlapping green leaves...

...and added more overlapping

Embellishments finished the card. 

The back of the card - stamps and chalk pastel.
