Fur or Feathers at AYLI

Hello lovely peeps

I'm chuffed to bits to be appearing as a Guest Designer at As You Like It today. They have challenges once a fortnight where you have to choose between 2 options and explain why.
The theme this time is Fur or Feathers, and as my logo includes a cat it really had to be 'Fur' for me.

Strangely I don't actually have many cat stamps as I don't often come across one that I like, but I love this background from IndigoBlu - 'Kibble Kits'. I stamped it onto watercolour card with Black Versafine ink and coloured it with Distress Oxides (I splodged them onto my craft mat and picked up the colour with a damp paintbrush).

I fussy cut along the top around all the ears and trimmed the edges down before mounting it on more watercolour card.

There are larger cat stamps that go with this background but I don't have them (yet). Instead I've used one of the images from the Three Amigos set by Mama Elephant which has three adorable critters holding up signs.

The set includes lots of little words but I wanted some a little (OK, a lot) more cheesy so I printed some sentiments off onto watercolour card from my computer (Verdana font, size 11).

 and stamped the cat around them.

I coloured in with the Distress Oxides again and cut out the cat with a little border.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
