I don't know about this cat's expression, he is either ignoring the little "friend" or he is pretending to ignore him to pounce on him in a split second, what do you think? I stamped the cat on a piece of Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored it with the aqua painter and SU markers in More Mustard for the body and a little bit of Certainly Celery for his eyes. The mouse was also stamped with Stazon ink but on a bigger panel of water color paper in which I glued a strip of pattern paper from my stash. First I wanted to stamp the mouse separate and then snip him out but that tail was going to be nearly impossible to cut so I glued the paper first then, using my MISTI I stamped the mouse right on top of the paper to give the illusion he is standing on it? I hope this is ok with the challenge, the sketch doesn't have another image on that line.
Here is a close up picture of this unlikely pair of friends.
Here is a picture of the finished inside.
The sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set called "Dahlias" and the teeny, tiny mousy is from another classic and adorable retired SU set called "Furry Folk", from the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog.
Here is the sketch that inspired this card.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, (maybe a bit later? LOL!!) happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
