The wisdom of cats

I hope your week is going well. My holiday is drawing to a close and I keep thinking I must do some spring cleaning but somehow I only seem to get crafting done! Today's theme on the #craftingwithgiogio challenge is animals and I have gone with a cat.

I have studied many philosophers and many cats. 
The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior.
Hippolyte A. Taine

The background was built up with layers of Faber-Castell Gelatos blended with a damp wipe and lifted through stencils.

The cat is a kraft card laser cut from Giogiocraft, gessoed then coloured with Gelatos.

Need to keep working on that lettering I think.

Thank you for taking time to look. Take care xxx


  1. Great quote, and beautiful page and background using only your Gelatos and a few Gio's stencils! I think you have also wonderfully used this cat laser cut, Claire. It really pops out!!! xx

  2. Hi Claire, loving this so much. Great quote too. Happy creative week, Angela xXx

    1. Thank you and you too. I look forward to the smiles on Friday xx

  3. The cat laser cut is so interesting, both realistic and whimsy at the same time! Your page evokes for me a domestic scene at home and it looks peaceful. Have a great week, Claire!

    1. Thank you I like the idea of whimsy. Have a lovely week xx


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it. xx
