Zetti Postcard

"Miss Kitty"
4"x6" Postcard
(Click on her heart to see the details!)

April was a very busy month of swaps and challenges. I'm about to send this postcard off to my swap partner, but thought you'd enjoy a peek. This month's postcard swap theme was to create a Zetti creature of our choice.  Using Teesha Moore's influence, I drew Miss Kitty's face on a piece of scrap paper and colored it in with Prismacolor markers and pencils. After she was drawn, I decided to "go colorful". Geeze . . . what a surprise! LOL!

Hope you have a colorful day!


Credits: Special thanks to Nancy Baumiller's Crowabout Flickr group for many of the border pieces, the images used to collage Miss Kitty's dress, and her colorful heart. Shoes were clipped from a magazine and altered. The word, "Happy" was created from cut out magazine letters. Wings, highly altered, are from Dover Publications.

She is gorgeous and I love her shoes. As always such a beautiful 'quilt' of colors and designs - a joy to the eye to find all of the beautiful woven details!

First, I somehow missed the lovely freebie sheet you posted on the 30th. Where was I? Obviously not online!

Second, this is all you. I love how well you combine all those images and turn them into something totally gorgeous and colorful. Bleubeard has a crush on Miss Kitty. He wants her crown and is "smitten" by her eyes.
