It's all crazy now!

Hello again, I have been pretty busy this month with very little time to create but one of the items on my to do list was a display board with the new Tim Holtz Crazy Cats for Snazzys. The Headmaster's brief (aka despairing plea!) was to do something 'more colourful' so it would stand out on a show stand, what can he have meant lol?


...one display board, more colourful, but boy do those cats look miserable - I was combining them with a great Vertical Greeting set from Impression Obsession and had difficulty in finding one that looked cheery enough for the Happy Birthday greeting!

So, as I had the stamps lying about my desk together with the Bird Crazy Set (which also need to have a 'more colourful' display board), I indulged myself with a couple of cards that are absolutely not 'more colourful' but which I think suit the stamps better.

First, the cats....

....and then the birds.

Both simply stamped onto old book pages with some added Gathered Twigs Distress ink, my new favourite brown, a greeting from Dylusions for the cats with some twine, some Candied Apple Distress ink on the beaks and a greeting created with the Stepping Stone Alphabet from Hero Arts for the birds, and a fair bit of fussy cutting later.... What do you think? Brights or Browns?

Thanks for dropping by.
