Recently I made a card for a friend that has two cats. Of course I had to use some Tim Holtz cats. I used Crazy Cats. I am really happy how this turned out.
The background for my card is a piece I created some time ago. I think I smooshed some Distress Oxide ink onto watercolor paper. I stamped the yarn balls and fish bones, from the Crazy Cats set, using a brown Distress Oxide ink. It is hard to see but I also stamped the numbers from the Faded Type stamp set in a light green Distress Oxide ink. They are kind of hard to spot.
The sentiment is stamped.
For the cats I ink blended Black Soot and Hickory Smoke. I then stamped the cats over the ink and heat embossed using black embossing powder. I stamped the eyes again and cut them out and glued them to the cats and added Glossy Accents. I cut the cats out by hand.
The present and the balloon is from the Crazy Things set. I smooshed some Distress Oxide on a mat and watercolored the present. For the balloon I used a glaze pen to make it shiny. The milk bottle is from Crazy Cats set and it has Glossy Accents on it and the label is colored in with a Copic pen. I cut all of these out by hand. The balloon string was drawn on.
Entered over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge with the theme We’re On A Roll. I have a couple balls of yarn stamped on my background.
