Watercolor Crest — When the Cat is Queen

Do you have a pet that rules the roost?

Than you can relate to Samantha and Calvin.  The only thing that could possibly match their love for each other is their love for "Queen", their darling cat.  Calvin adopted her as a kitten while he and Samantha were still dating.  They quickly fell in love and became the "crazy" cat parents that they are today!  Naturally, when brainstorming ways to personalize their crest, Queen became part of the conversation in record time.


We considered showing off Queen's playful and lovable side, and even include a mouse (one of her favorite gifts to find for her dear Mama) in the corner, but we decided to show off her more regal mood.  This seemed fitting for the more formal personality of a crest itself, and still gave us a chance to showcase a side of their sweet pet.  Her favorite "throne" is a dusty blue and white pin stripe wing-back chair, which inspired the crest shape and color, while Samantha's love for deep purple and lilacs decided the rest of the color scheme.

What details would YOU include in a family crest?
