MOJO454 ~ TDLLC "HAPPY BIRTHDAY ~ IT'S YOUR SPECIAL DAY" card using Tim Holtz Crazy Cats, Talk and Things **PLUS A GIVEAWAY!!**

Happy Thursday Everybody!   I have a TupeloDesignsLLC Design Team card project for you today. I pulled out some stamps that are just too dang funny!!  The stamps are from the Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection:  Crazy Cats, Crazy Talk and Crazy Things.  These stamps are red rubber and stamps sooooo nicely. I hope they come out with some more Crazy Talk and maybe some Crazy Dogs ~ haha!!

This "crazy cat" is hilarious ~ haha.  just a fun image to stamp, color and die-cut.

The cat image was so easy to color as well as a lot of fun ~ laughing happened all while doing so!

 Here's how I colored it in using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens after stamping it with Versafine Black ink:

Step 1. Color the whole cat less his eyes and nose in 900 Warm Gray 2.
Step 2. I then took 67 Mustard and colored in some random spots.

Step 3. I put some more spots beside others and some in random places using 72 Beige.
Step 4. *NOTE: I have the wrong marker in the picture. I then colored over the areas on the stamped image that show shading (slanted lines) with 901 Gray Tint and put some pink in it's ears with 028 Pale Pink.
Step 5. I colored in some half moons in his eyes with 302 Haze Blue

The dies as so easy to line up to cut out the images.  This cat cracks me up every time I look at it.

I used this week's MojoMonday Sketch #454 ~ I flipped the sketch:  MOJO454

These are all the fun stamps I used ~ I also used the coordinating dies for the Crazy Cats and the Crazy Things.
