A cat's chorus

I know, I know, one day I will wear these cat stamps out. I just LOVE the Katzelkraft "Les chats Russes" set, the cats' faces are so expressive, especially the Grumpy Cat one in the middle of this card.

I used a couple of papers that reminded me of rather old fashioned wallpaper and stamped the cats onto the background paper as well as onto plain white. This is simply because I'm too blimmin' lazy to fussy cut all those whiskers and tufts of fur! I coloured them in with Promarkers - and chose pink because it made a nice contrast from the aqua background. After all, they are caricature cats, so they don't have to be cat coloured do they? I just need to be careful not to refer to them as "pink pussies" or every spam bot on the web will be making a beeline for my blog in the hope of seeing something completely different......

Oh well, that's my blog stats for the day boosted....

Anyway, back to the card. The singing cat's music was added with an old Kanban stamp, and the sentiment, perfect for Grumpy Cat, is a Rubber Dance stamp which I hand cut into a "think bubble" adding the traditional little circles leading to it by using the two hole punches on my Cropadile to punch tiny circles.
