Cat ATC's

Hello everyone,

Yesterday I received the "Crazy Cats" stamps by Tim Holtz in the mail. I think they were designed by Kristina Werner like the "Crazy Things" that go with the "Crazy Birds".  I was so excited that I had to use them straight away. So I made an ATC yesterday afternoon and another one today !

For this ATC I used a piece of paper from a master board. I cut it to size and did nothing to it as I thought it was nice as it was. The cat & fishbone was stamped on white card stock and coloured with Copic Markers. I cut both out and adhered them to the ATC (I stamped cat & bone also directly on the ATC). Lastly I doodled a line around the ATC and that was that. 

For this ATC, again I used a piece of paper that was already partly coloured. I added some more colour with Lindy's Stampgang Spray and some Twisted Citron Distress Ink. I used Tim Holtz stamps for the background. Next I stamped the cat and coloured him with COpic Markers. I cut him out and stamped him also on to the ATC. This way you get all the little bits, like the lines next to his back and his whiskers. I adhered him on top of himself, so to speak. I thought this sentiment fitted him perfectly as he looks a bit scared. I typed it on my old typewriter. Lastly I used a black and white gel pen to add some doodling. 

Thank you for stopping by today ! I appreciate it !

  6. Love the Crazy Cats! I am especially taken with your blue and brown ATC. Great colors!

  7. Ik kan me voorstellen dat je daar meteen mee aan de slag moest ! Wat zijn ze leuk he !

  8. Die katten zijn errug leuk, maar waar ik vooral naar keek zijn de gedoodle randen en de witte puntjes; lijken kleine accenten, maar oh zo mooi! Groetjes, Gerrina

  9. So jealous, stalking the postman for mine. Love the kitties!
