Cat Lover's Hop: Sparkling Kitty



Hello, I am so happy to be participating in this new event: The Cat Lover's Hop!  I participate in other Blog Hops regularly but this one has to be one of my favourites, because it has a Cat theme!  You know how I love those felines.  So here is my project:



I made a black sparkly cat with shiny green eyes, not just because Halloween is around the corner, but because I am the proud fur mom of a beautiful long black fur cat with amazing green eyes! Do you see the resemblance?  LOL!



We are doing this Cat Theme Blog Hop from October 26 through 29.  October 29 is National Cat Day after all.  Only us feline fanatics would know this.

So To make my bling cat I used a wooden cut out that I purchased at the Dollar store, and I took off the cord meant for hanging it.



I gave it two coats of Black Acrylic Craft Paint (DecoArt), let that dry and then moved onto the bling!



The shiny embellishments are sheets of faux rhine stones that I also bought at the Dollar Store (Dollarama).  I brushed on some glue on the cat and lay down the sheets.  Once the glue was dry I just used some scissors and cut off the excess.  It is bit tricky to cut around the rhine stones, as you can't really cut through them.  I made the eyes with some more faux gems again from Dollarama.
I used my favourite craft glue: Aleen'e Tacky.



By the way I have several other projects on this blog and my YouTube Channel where I showcase cats, most often a black one!  So check them out.

I hope that you enjoy the hop, leave some comments and maybe win a prize!  Thanks so much for stopping by.
