Tiddles

By GillyB    
Well a first for me (and probably the last!)
"I don't do people or pets" I said when a friend suggested I photograph her kitten ... well, I did as I couldn't resist!

Tiddles was found abandoned in a hedge on the edge of a field but now has a new home, so all is well that ends well!

I added a few textures in layers and twiddled and tweaked them a bit to end up with this Smile

Many thanks as always for taking the time to look.

I don't do people or pets

Ditto.


But perhaps you should do more, you've certainly done Tiddles proud.

scores very high on the "aaah" scale.

I like the use of the textures to soften the edges.

He is beautiful... I'd rescue him anytime... How could anyone abandon such a beauty?
