The Sisterhood of Evil Stampers

The newest challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers starts today, and it is a fun one: E is for Evil! As for our challenge badge, I'm not saying a word. :D 
I had to ponder this one for a while... evil is somewhat subjective, I think. Also, I don't have a lot of sentiments that are evil *enough*. As can happen, my mind eventually wandered to cats. After all, cats do sometimes get a bad rap - black cats and bad luck, familiars of scary witches... there's even a myth that a cat will jump in a crib and steal a baby's breath. So cats it is: 

This trio of ATCs was a lot of fun to make, and use some of my earliest cat stamps, too! I didn't even have to colour them! A closer look at each one...

This is the cat face that got me started. He seems to look demented enough. ;) The background is distress oxide ink blended on manila tag, splattered with water (see that extra little mark just above the Moi? That was a cat hair. How appropriate.) and then fish skeletons stamped in the same inks. All sentiments are computer-generated. 

I think this is my favourite of the trio. I knew this chubster would look great with a little feather as evidence to his *crime*. (Nature, red in tooth and claw...) Handy to have a former fly-tie-guy around the house for when feathers are needed. 

I couldn't resist using this crazy-faced cat, too. (I got out my Tim Holtz Crazy Cats; they may be crazy, but none of them really look that evil. :D) Another distress oxide blended background with some delightfully muddy paw prints.

Cutest evil cats I've ever seen! Easy to see you had fun making these!
Have you seen the new TE Myth grumplings? The sentiments are hilarious and, perhaps, just a wee bit evil! I may need to splurge...holding back...for a minute...maybe two...
