Cat for my kitten

February 21, 2012 at 14:20 (Blog, Drawing) (, , , , , )

Yesterday my fiancée had the honor /bad luck of turning 35 years old.

I’ve usually given her a birthday card for this occasion, but I’ve recently made her not just a mothers day card but also a valentines day card, and thought it might be time to think of something new.
So of course I did something old instead, I made her a birthday crown, just like for the kids at the kindergarten.

I decided on a cat theme because small kittens just melt her heart away. I started out searching for a reference picture and found this little fuzzball:

After painting it, I cut the little bugger out…

Next up was the lettering. I wanted a pretty font with flames inside.

Finally, I mounted it all on a purple background. Here’s the result, seen from both sides.
