Beautiful black cat

I adore this gorgeous cat stamp, an old PSX one called Waiting For Dinner, yet I hardly ever use it. Partly because in theory it belongs to my daughter and I'm just "looking after it" for her until her busy life as a working Mum allows her time to start stamping again, and partly because it's such a big, beautiful stamp that it really can't handle much in the way of added colour, pattern or embellishment. But today I've stamped it with Versafine ink and embossed with clear powder, then used it to make a big 20cm square card that has given me rather more leeway to add a background (printed from the Coosty Creations Cats download) and a sentiment (also printed from a download that was once given free on a blog). A hint of golden-green on the eyes and a tiny sliver of a border of matching green card are all the colour I added.

I am sharing this with
