Crazy Cat Birthday Love

I have had this idea for a while about how to use my crazy cat stamp with a certain sentiment for a card that is a little wild, but funny if you have a certain sense of humor.  I plan to use this card as a birthday card for my brother. I think (I hope) he will think it is really funny.

(click on photo to enlarge.)

I colored the cat with alcohol markers and then added some glossy accents to the eyes.  I really loved the idea of using a black background with the fishy stamp to create the scene for the funny sentiment.


As a last addition, this morning I thought to add a few heart gems.  I think they add the perfect touch of color to the card, and are funny with the overall scene and sentiment.

Supplies:  Tim Holtz Crazy Cats stamp set, Hero Art CL342 sentiment set, Memento Jet Black ink, spectrum noir markers, glossy accents, Versamark ink, Recollections White Embossing powder, Tim Holtz by Sizzix tag dies, gems from my stash.

I would love to participate in the following challenge:
