I had seen this cat stamp in blogland and loved it so found myself one on that well known auction site. Then it sat on my desk uninked for quite a while! Darnell is running her NBUS challenge again so it was the perfect opportunity for it to get inked. Or so I thought! Even with the Misti and repeated stamping I couldn't get a decent image, the cat's middle just wouldn't stamp. Eventually I abandoned the Misti and went back to a clear block and managed to get a reasonable image, or at least one I could go with.
Then I sponged distress inks around the cat, a sentiment from Stampin' Up, coloured the flowers,added some WoS to them and some ribbon. Job done, but not sure I'll be using the stamp any time soon!
