Just finished a project that had been sitting on my "to-do" pile for months, if not years. And just in time fore the holidays.

I started with a readymade birdhouse from Micheal's and free-hand drew the open mouthed cat on the wood.

Here's my original sketch you can use as a template/ guide

Then I painted the design with craft paint, added highlights/lowlights, outlined some important details with sharpies and then applied two coats of clear coat lacquer.  Note of warning, the sharpie markers bled a little when I spray the clear coat.

Here's the finished project from all sides.  Thanks for looking, hope I've inspired someone.

I have loads of good quality CIGAR BOXES available for trade.  Great for purses, shrines, jewelry boxes.  PM for Pics.

It looks awesome!  Don't you hate it when you go to all that hard work and then something bleeds on it.. though I think it adds to the character of it.  Great job, well worth finishing.
