Beneath a Wondrous Star

A Christmas cat sitting beneath a wondrous star.
The cat is sitting in some new fallen snow and the card itself was painted
with a glaze of silver and light blue watercolor mixed with Schmincke Aqua Shine....which unfortunately, does not show up too well on photos. Aqua Shine can be mixed with any color watercolor and gives you an instant ice-like shine without being gaudy or over the top.
Illustration Friday...IF....the prompt this week being, beneath.

The Christmas Kitty looks like he is wishing upon a star! Love the Merry Kittymas. The product that you used to give a soft ice shine, I have to look for. What a brilliant idea! Have a wonderful day!

This card is such fun! Love it and I bet it looks gorgeous with the icy sheen on it. Must try to get some of that - will make a note of its name. Lovely, fun image and words.

It makes me think of an Egyptian pyramid in the sun. Okay, maybe that's just me because the weather has been cold and dreary where I live and it's kind of a nice thought for Kittymas, or maybe I'm thinking of the wise men traveling through the desert to Bethlehem? The cat looks kind of statuesque. I like the feathery edging too.

(My first reply 'poofed' into cyberspace!) As I was saying: "There you go, girl! Simplicity and taste, with a little shine!"

The Christmas-kitty is darling! I know it will be a hit with all cat-lovers. You should think about selling them on Etsy...
Thanks for your kind comment on my blog.
Have a great day!
