The theme for this week's torso ATC for the SCD Challenge is "Memories". I struggled a bit at first with this one as I had an idea in my head what I wanted it to be about, then when I began, nothing seemed to work - it was all a bit of a hotch-potch and I wasn't very happy with it. However, I played around a bit more with the card until now I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out. My torso is a remembrance of all the wonderful and different cats that my family and I have had the honour of sharing our lives with over the years.
The background was some Crafty Individuals paper, inked and edged with a gold Krylon pen. The stamped cat heads are from a Hampton Art Stamp - Kitty Tiles 4578 - coloured with Promarkers and pencils, edged with gold. I used rub-on words on the background, plus other word stickers, covered with Glossy Accents and Beadazzles. I love the little "heart with wings" charm which I inked with Butterscotch alcohol ink as it was originally silver. I finished by wrapping some wool fibres around the "cherish" sticker - rather appropriate as cats love playing with wool.
Hope you like it. I'm really enjoying the challenge of creating cards with this torso shape, to the extent that I've made one of my "Seaside" swap cards with a torso and plan on making another one. Looking forward on Friday to seeing what the subject of next week's torso will be and to swapping all of them out at the end of the month.
