You’re old…

Hello, hello! I’ve got a quick and easy (okay… I lied. It’s not so quick and not so easy) birthday card to share with you today that I’m also entering in the new challenge over on the Blank Page Muse blog.

I really love the Katz stamps by Rick St. Dennis over at BPM and decided to use one; Cat with Toilet Paper Streamer Mouse as the focal image of my card.

I’ve always thought that this cat had a really long scarf twisted about himself… but I realized today that it’s not a scarf. It’s a roll of toilet paper! ๐Ÿ˜† Probably should have been obvious to me given the name of the stamp and all but what can I say? I’m a bit slow ๐Ÿ˜‰.

I stamped my toilet paper cat to a white card panel using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and applied a Post It Note mask over it. I went in over the mask with Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean, and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks. Once I was finished blending I spritzed on a bit of water.

Next I colored TP kitty, his rat buddy, and his toilet paper scarf in using various shades of gray from about four different brands of alcohol ink markers.

I decided to color kitty’s eyes a vibrant blue (B24 Copic) to pick up on the blue tones in the background.

I added three sequins from an older sequins mix from Simon Says Stamp.

Next I stamped the “you’re old” sentiment from the Holy Sh*t set by Ink Road Stamps to the card panel with Versafine in Onyx Black and heat set it with clear embossing powder.

I applied the card panel to a black A2 sized card base.

For the inside of the card I stamped one of the “happy birthday” sentiments from the Mari Party stamp set from Ink Road Stamps with Memento Tuxedo Black ink to a piece of white cardstock and mounted that to the interior.

Finally I decided that while this was a good birthday card I wanted it to be a great birthday card. Which led me to busting out the clear Wink of Stella and completely glitterizing the toilet paper ๐Ÿ˜†.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.

Until next time,

Dusty old bones full of green dust,
