A Smitten Kitten

This week's Squigglefly challenge is Clean And Simple (SFC0314). I used a new image called Kitten by Enid Barnes. Enid Barnes's realistic animal images are done in an artistic technique called pointillism. Kind of over my head, but from what I can tell she uses a lot of dots to make the images. They are very realistic and very beautiful and they are perfect when doing a CAS card because you don't have to color them if you don't want to - I didn't want to so all I did was place the image on the paper and then use a great sentiment by Lynne Stansbery (out of her I Miss You set which also has a kitten). I am trying to get a few Valentine's cards done as it is sneaking up on us fast!


What a great and easy challenge. If you don't have a Squigglefly image to use in the challenge, there are some fun freebies you can use (a few are even great for Valentines Day or to do a CAS card.

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!
