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’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! 😆 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 😉.
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 😆.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.
Until next time,
Dusty old bones full of green dust,
