You're the cat's pyjamas!

I love this cute cat from the "Cutie Pet-tootie" set designed by Kim Hughes for Cornish Heritage Farms. He normally looks like this..........

I decided I didn't want him naked as I wanted to handwrite "You're the cat's pyjamas" as a sentiment. Using my Copic fine liner (doesn't bleed when colouring with copics) I drew on some groovy pjs and added little heart and pockets.

I coloured the whole image with Copics and added some clear Copic spica glitter pen.
Oh, and I had pre-embossed the square with my nestabilities before stamping the cat. Some people ask should you stamp first or after?? I do both.

It is best if you are organised and have nestabilites cut out before stamping but sometimes you decide to use nestabilities after you have the image coloured and ready. Now, this is ok if your Wizard holds the paper in place and doesn't move OR all your hard work could be lost. I minimise this by using a thin magnetic layer that holds the nestie in place.

Here's a sneak peek inside!!! This little mousey is from the same set and there is a little piece of cheese too.
