The Cats Mother

This my mothers day card. Its from a phrase which my mum quite likes: "Who's "She"? the cats mother?"

Its also my first attempt at screen-printing in about 7 years...I think I still have a lot to learn, but it is really about using the right kind of paper, the right paper for stencilling, and getting the amount and consistency of paint right. But I quite like the looseness of the patchy areas.

(Perhaps also inspired by the frustrated tom cat who has taken to visiting our back garden every night wailing loudly for a lady companion.)
