Fur or Feathers

The latest Artful Times challenge is Fur or Feathers, I decided to go for fur although there are some birds on the embossing.

I made a tag out of ribbed kraft card and dry brushed lemonade DecoArt paint over it and then I stamped paw prints with burnt orange DecoArt paint. I embossed a piece of kraft core card with a cuttlebug embossing folder and sanded the raised areas to show the core.
I stamped the cat onto white card, coloured it lightly with coloured pencils and cut it out. I coloured some card with shabby shutters Distress ink and stamped the purr and rats/mice onto it and cut them out. I embellished the tag with staples and a piece of ribbon.
The stamps I used are
Craft UK for the cat and rats/mice
I don't know who made the purr stamp.

I'm entering my tag in the following challenges.
