Wings And Things/WOYWW

This week I have been playing with wings!  I am thrilled with my new rubber stamps that I had purchased on ebay that had several different wings that are unmounted. On my desk you can see I am beginning to work on a face that I have sketched out of a girl and will add wings to her and I finished several cats and cat fairies since Easter.
I have played with some cat zetti themed ATC's from photos I have taken of cats.
The cat is Dante', my niece's cat placed on a vintage boxer photo.  The black ring is actually a paper end from a prewound bobbin.
This is a photo of our little Bisky baby on a vintage child's body.  You usually find her with her tongue sticking out.  Here, I turned her eyes turquoise, but her eyes are actually golden yellow.
This hot lips is actually our cat, Boa.  Boa named after his feathered boa tail.  Yes, I said HIS, as he is a male cat, but sure made a cute girl here. lol
Miss copy cat is our cat, Nova.  As I was painting stripes on her to be more zetti, the idea hit me to make a lamp look alike.

Besides doing ATC's, I have made some cat fairy designs for a chunky page book exchange.  I have yet to add some jump rings and charms or ribbons to them.  I even noticed after the fact that some are missing some tails! LOL  I guess I was just too eager to post this new cat series.  It was too fun coming up with these new characters.  I couldn't resist adding the cat teeth of which our Boa cat laid on my desk and proudly modeled. lol   The cats were sketched out on scrap book paper while the background is painted in acrylics on bar coasters.  I used versa magic chalk inks and a piece of construction dry wall tape for the dots.  It's actually smaller holed than punchella.
I've named this cat  Dexter .  He's the WTF fairy.  He happens to be around no matter WTF happens!

The cat's name is  Digby, He is the cat fairy in charge of sprinkling magic fairy dust so that cats are ensured cat naps during the day.

This cat's name is Jean-Clawed.  He's in charge of ensuring that cat claws are nice and sharp!
This fairy cat's name is Prissy.  She's in charge of granting finicky tastes.
This is fairy cat, Dash.  He grants the cats speed for chasing small rodents.
This is Pouncer, the fairy cat in charge of birds. He teaches the skill of jumping, of which they occasionally bring home a trophy.

I could draw these forever, but for now, I have to finish off the backs of the cards and get some ready to send off in the mail.  Luckily I have kept a few for myself to make and add to my book.

If you wish join or to see what are on other work desks,  check out Julia's WOYWW.  I am sorry to say that I have missed the past couple of weeks, but seems I am making up for it now.

The tags are real fun. Can you tell me what Zetti means I keep seeing the word and cant work out what it is. Is it an American thing.
