The Dog Did It - Tim Holtz Crazy Cats

What do you get when you have a friend over to stamp with you?  You get to use her new stamps, of course!  A true friend lets you use her stamps...even when she has not used them yet!  Thanks, Arlene!  
I stamped the cat on card stock, then used distress inks to paint him, using very little water so as not to pill the card stock.  I stamped and colored the milk bottle and yarn balls on a scrap piece of card stock, and cut them out.  It really does not show vey well in the pic, but the yarn and milk bottle are dimensional.  I used DAP Kwid Seal adhesive caulk instead of foam tape.  The caulk is easy to squeeze out of the tube, and stays dimensional when dry.  It is easier than cutting tiny pieces of foam tape for small objects.

I used white acrylic paint with Glossy Accents for the spilled milk and on the bottle.  The background is a Tim Holtz stencil, with distress ink sponged through.  For the floor, I just dragged the sponge tool across the card.  

The verse is done using letters form the Hero Arts Sparkle Clear:  Cute Letters.

We had so much fun playing with these stamps today!  I am sending this off to The Daily Marker Color Challenge Day 26.  I am a day behing.  I will post Day 27 and 28 tomorrow.  Hope you get to have some fun this weekend.
