Hope you've all had a great week and have something splendid to look forward to this weekend.
I recently spoke to a pal who was bemoaning the fact she had so much stash as yet uninked which reminded me that I had recently acquired "Les chats russes" by Katzelkraft and had, until yesterday, only inked one of the images to the set ....... so, I set about rectifying that pronto ... and inked not one but two! re-SULT!
|And a closer view of the image panel, you'd be grumpy too - with a mouse on your tail!|
|And my insert and envelope|
- White C6/A2, 250gsm, card blank and matching sized envelope
- Two pieces of 9½ x 13½cm white card panels
- Two pieces of 9.9 x 13.9cm black card panels
- Snippets of card in both black and white
- Katzelkraft mouse stamped using Ranger Archival ink in jet black ink on to my snippet, insert and both the front and back of my envelope and also on to a post it which I then cut out and used as a mask
- Katzelkraft cat image stamped over the mask using Ranger Archival jet black ink
- Paper Artsy splatter image stamped using Versacolour chateau grey and Memento pear tart inks
- Sentiments by The Cat's Pyjamas and Precious Remembrance Shop stamped using Versafine onyx black ink

With more than a passing nod to the talent of Kate Crane, I find I've been on a bit of a spoon dolly kick and made Mark I, II and III bases ...... Mark II featured in my post on Wednesday and Mark I lay sadly neglected for a day or so as I over "pinked" those flesh tones. However, a coat of white paint with a hint of tan seemed to sort that out so here's how Mark I looks ... If you check out Kate's you will find her spoon dolly much more creative than my own but still, I remain pretty happy with the results, after all, I'm a rubber stamper and this is way out of my personal comfort zone but, THANKS KATE

And now, the Friday Funny, courtesy of Winifred - thanks mate - ENJOY .. it's a little irreverent but Winifred used to be a nun so I've no reason to suppose it will be found to be offensive.
