Bookpaper, stamps, a splash of color...

.. and stitching, makes for hours of fun! 

The background has been made with watercolor crayons and gesso on bookpaper.  I stamped the cat on a piece of bookpaper that was painted with (diluted) gesso first. 
I've added some stitches to the border of the background, it creates a frame around it.  
All the stamps are from Lost Coast designs.  
Those eyes say everything! :)

I am entering this in the challenge on
