Skinny Kitty

This is to fill a request for Trina Caraway - her favorite, the Pink Panther. 

I like this one but I don't LOVE him because...

First, SU doesn't have the exact shade of pink that I would like to have used. 

And second, as with all well known characters, this isn't exactly the 'look' - punches aren't THAT flexible. 

But if you need a card for a Pink Panther Fan this ought to get you started.

Head - Large oval - flattened top and bottom
Ears - small heart to heart "bumps" trimmed off
Eye - half 1/2 inch circle yellow - 1/2 inch circle pink (cut in half to get two eyes)
Eyebrows - slot punch on edge of paper to get it thin
Muzzle - three 1/2 inch circles
Nose - word window on corner of paper
Neck - my way arrow
Body - 3 word window - 1 light pink- 2 darker pink
Long leg - narrow strip from trimmer
Bent leg - square punch offset from square punch hole
Feet - small ovals - one against edge of paper, one offset from small oval hole
arms - ring from large oval around small oval hole
hands - tips of word window trimmed with point of star punch
tail - rings from large oval around small oval hole (meet behind the leg)
black marker eye - white gel pen freckles, ear marking
You should add whiskers with black pen - I didn't since I don't have him on a project yet.

I think he would look fabulous as a black panther too - maybe if some school has panthers as their mascot?

Happy Easter to those who celebrate it.

Happy opportunity to buy 1/2 price chocolate bunnies to all of us on Monday!

Hey, this is an awesome Pink Panther, and yes, he would make a good black panther, or even a Durant Cougar, for those scrapbooks I am several years behind on. Have a wonderful Easter, and eat a piece of dark chocolate for me, cuz I can't have any :(
