Ok, so I may have gone to town a little bit with this! I took my inspiration from looking at images of 'real' pieces of altered art, and also digital altered art and ended up with a bit of a combination. The photo is altered big time - I extracted Jamie from one photo and added him to another to get the background I wanted (with some cloning to get rid of unwanted bits), then I ran one of Syndee's brilliant Vintage Postcard actions to give the aged look to the photo. Finally I added the wings, crown and collar to Jamie. And just because I was having fun, I then 'altered' the frame by adding the buttons and the key. And to top it all off, I went for the abstract and added the bird carrying the 'altered' cat! It took a bit of time, but it sure made me think outside the box a bit - thanks Marilyn for another fabulous challenge.
