Wild Thing ~ an ATC for World Watercolour Month

I never, ever, ever, EVER paint cats.  Big ones  or small ones … never.  They have such lush fur and they wear it so well, that I find it really difficult to capture – even with just a pencil drawing cannot do them justice.  Therefore it’s easier to just not paint or draw them at all.

So what went wrong here then?  I don’t know.  I have no idea what form of madness came over me which made me think I could paint a leopard.

A pamphlet came courtesy of the postman today (Monday – as I’m typing this).  It was a crafting/painting/sewing/you name it, it covered or mentioned it.  Inside was a terrific picture of a Leopard and I sat admiring him.  Then this little stray thought came wheedling its way into my brain, and . . . the dreadful, dirty, deed was done.

I went to my craft room to paint an ATC for the World Watercolour Month Challenge and I decided I would have a bash at painting the Leopard.  What.  An.  Idiot!

I can’t paint cats of any sort.  They’re too wonderful for me to try to paint.  But I gave it a go and although the finished result isn’t a total disaster, no self-respecting Leopard would want to own up to being the Leopard which Cobs put together like some really bad painting by numbers jovial delight.

I told Mr.Cobs that I couldn’t put it on the blog as it wasn’t good enough.  He disagreed and told me to post it.  So … I’m posting it … but it’s his idea it’s here,  so we’ll blame him.

And that’s all there is to today’s show and tell!

Happy Tuesday!

You got past Monday then?  Good-o!  Well that means there’s only 4 days left, now that sounds MUCH better than the original 5.  Not only that, but the original 5 had that most awful of days in it … Monday.  The four days you have here doesn’t have any day beginning with the three letters:  Mon.  No ‘Mon’ at all.  None of the remaining days even have even just one of those letters in their own first three!

Check it out:   Tue.  Wed.  Thu.  Fri.  See?  No MNo Oand finally …. No N.  Isn’t this now the greatest week on earth, ever??!!

Wishing you a terrific Tuesday, filled with a little laughter, some lovely smiles and … a smattering of love.

Have a thoroughly groovy one, my friends ~
