Winged Monsta


I'm rushing to write this as I think the Scrappin' With I Did It Creations challenge is closing in a matter of minutes, and I wanted to get this piece in. The kitty is one of my crew, she's called Monsta, and it suits her :P The papers are from my Gothic Bruise set, and I gave her a turquise tint and created the wings from her fur in PSP.
I created this LO for the following challenges:
Haunted Design House Macabre Mondays - Foul Flutterings (something with wings)
Scrappin' With I Did It Creations - Fantasy
The Pink Elephant - Scrap challenge 18, use the sketch LO and colour scheme aqua black and white.
Mission to Create - Challenge 22, my concepts are: beads, wings and hand-drawn journalling lines. How can I call the lines hand-drawn when I did the LO digitally? Well, I loaded up the paintbrush with the colour I wanted and then turned off all the tools and actions that would have measured the lines and made them all symmetrical and parallel and straight and just smooshed my mouse across where I wanted the lines to be :P
Inspiration Avenue - out of this world/fantasy/sci-fi
Three Muses - odd bird. Im not sure if this qualifies because a cat with wings would indeed be an odd "bird" or just because, even for a cat, Monsta is odd. She will open all the doors she can overnight. We leave all the actual doors open anyway, but she will go around and nose further open any that she feels are too narrow, but she also opens cupboard doors, especially in the kitchen. We've had to put child locks on the fridge, freezer and food cupboards to stop her leaving those wide open and/or raiding the contents. She will also meow on command and falls asleep on top of doors or thin radiators or windows.
Kah-Wink-E-Dink - anything goes, as long as it's cool
Creative Inspirations - animals
Charisma Cardz - something with a tail
Creative Friday - things with wings

Monsta sounds exactly like my Mini.
She is small in size, but big in voice and monstering.
I would love this as a Hlloween Card! It's wonderful :)
