One Cat Short of CRAZY


Hey Junkies,

The Crafty Nurse here today with one cat crazy card!

I used the Misti stamping tool to create my card today.  The great thing about this tool is when you have a solid stamp, you can still get a really crisp image.  It also helps when you are doing more complex masking like I did here with the January release stamp "Cat Crazy SD701." 

I started by stamping each of the "Crazy Cat's" onto my card front.  They were done in Archival Inks in Sepia, Black Soot, & Hickory Smoke.  I then masked all three of the cats and placed the Art Anthology Stencil called "Cracked" over top and stenciled in using Vintage Photo Distress Inks.  I stamped off 3 more of the black cats and then cut out the word "crazy" which I used as my sentiment.

To finish off I created a ground for my kitties to sit on with watercolored distress inks and finished off with more distressing on the edges.


For those crazy cat lovers and stampers alike, I hope you've found a little inspiration today and look forward to seeing what you do with your new Technique Junkies stamps.

Happy Inking,

Really awesome work. I love how you managed to mask the cats to use the stencil. BG colour is lovely.

LOL, Kathy...I just love this. Cutting out the "crazy" and turning it upside down was such a clever idea.
