Double D - Fences

Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm happy to say I am hosting today's challenge and today's theme is:


The design team ladies have come up with some amazing designs for your inspiration, be sure to pop over and check 'em out!  Speaking of inspiration ... here's the mood board I created ... hope it helps to inspire you!


 Here's today's creation ... hope you like it!

To create my scene, I started by cutting & piecing together a background panel from a very old 8x8 GCD Studios 'Ella Blue' designer paper pad (Hobby Lobby) to create my 'framed' A6 background.  Next I die cut my tree, fencing and cats (dies listed below).

I've used Spectrum Noir alcohol marker for my coloring and have popped up the 'kitties'.

  4. Awesome scene you have created! Love the tree and fence and your sweet cats out for a stroll!

  5. Adorably cute scene you have created and of course you had me with the kitty cats from the start lol ( I especially like the Freckles look alike tee hee)! I think the one kitty is having much fun watching those birdies...fabulous scene!

  6. Such a sweet card. I love how that kitty has his eye on that red bird. Those birds are the perfect final touch, LOVE it.

  7. What a great scene. I love the kitties too.

  8. Your scene looks great, love how you colored the cats, cool framing of the whole scene!

  9. Your fence line and kitties is darling Darlene! The little red birds are a fun pop of color and the perfect finishing touch.

  10. Darlene, I am loving that calico cat, both of the cats set this scene and make it magical card. Are they out of a walk in the fall, or are they stalking the birds in the tree? I wonder.

  11. Awesome, Darlene! I love the framed picture look and dimension you gave the scene. Your calico cat is fab!

  12. Dear Darlene
    The cats have popped up the card and the scene is beautiful. Blessings to you and yours

  13. Wow, what cool background paper to frame your scene, which looks very inviting, BTW. I love how you colored the calico! Great challenge and I hope I can play along before it's over.

  14. Such a great card. I love what you did with the cats and tiny red birds.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me some love!
