Crazy Cats .... on the beach

 Crazy Cats on the beach - Addicted to Art
I have been meaning to do this since the cats came out! Some of you might remember my Crazy Birds on Vacation from last year - so it only seemed fair to let the cats have some summer fun too! The challenge today at Country View Crafts is Hot Summer Days - so my cats seemed to fit the bill!

This time I decided to let them celebrate summer and dress them a little and having done the boys in their trunks I had to do the girls too! 

The backgrounds were done with marbled distress paints - I added a little stencilling to the boys but it is hardly visible. I stamped the cats - sketched the 'costumes' and sunglasses and then used my waterbrush, distress inks and black and white marker pens.

I hope they have put a smile on your face!

The cats would like to play along at:
