3 Amigos

Hello everyone, finally managed to finish my entry for the current Ready, Steady, Stamp challenge where you have to pick at least 5 ingredients from the long list of DT member Nefertiti's gorgeous set of skinnys.
The ingredients I picked as as follows:
Skinnys 3 x 5 inches
Cats
Multi Colour
Hand Drawing
Gems
Here's what I made:
I made the backgrounds by brayering with Kaleidacolor inks in Blue Breeze, Desert Heat and Berry Blaze. I then doodled on each one with markers to make a background pattern. I then stamped over the top with Memento black ink and my favourite script stamp, Hero Arts Old French Writing H2365.
I stamped the cats, The Party Cats set by Lost Coast Designs, in black Memento ink and coloured them with Promarkers in various shades. I cut them out and added gems to the hats. I just adore these cats which are so whimsical and cute but a little bit naughty.
I added the cats to the skinnies with foam tape and added computer generated text to finish.
I'm thinking these will make great card toppers when I need a quick card with a bit of a difference.
