So I thought this rather snarky sentiment from the Dylusions "Laugh till you leak" stamp sheet was perfect for using with a cat image. The cat itself is an old PSX stamp called "Waiting for dinner" which I have stamped with brown Memento ink and then coloured in several shades of grey Promarkers to give a silver tabby effect.
The tiny-teeny cat and mouse embellishments are actually tiny buttons. Normally when using a shanked button, I would use pincers or wire strippers to cut off the shank, but these were too tiny for even my jewellers tool, so instead I cut a hole through the topper and mat and inserted the shank through, holding the button in place with clear adhesive. The shanks are so short that the topper sits flat on the card below.
I used grey ink to stamp a very delicate fishy background, so as not to draw attention away from the cat - because the cat simply wouldn't stand for being anything less than the centre of attention!
