TV, one of Stampotique's new April stamps, was stamped with Jet Black Archival ink (Ranger). The edges of the TV were covered with Post-It Notes. The other three cats on the Kitty Squad stamp were covered with Post-It Notes, the remaining cat was inked, then stamped into the TV screen.

First the Cat and the TV were slightly shaded with Copic markers. The Cat's body was colored with Oktoberfest Orange Magical Shaker. His ears were colored with Oom Pah Pah Pink Magical Shaker. His eyes were colored with the Freaky Frankenlime Magical Powder from the Haunted Halloween set of Magical Powders.

The exterior of the  TV was colored with Black Forest Black Magical Shaker (Lindy's Stamp Gang). The TV screen was colored with Tainted Love Teal Magical Powder from the Haunted Halloween set of Magical Powders. The TV logo was colored with Yodeling Yellow Magical Shaker and the table was colored with Bratwurst Brown Magical ShakerThe background of the image panel was coloreded with Bavarian Blue Magical Shaker.

The image panel and black metallic cardstsock were die-cut with two of the dies from the 5x7 Card Creator Nestabilities die set (Spellbinders). The image panel was matted with the black metallic cardstock and the sentiment was added with Simply Sweet rub-ons (Doodlebug Designs).

A newspaper television listing was scanned, then printed onto cardstock. It was colored with Black Forest Black Magical Shaker, heat set, and placed under heavy books to flatten. When completely dry, it was trimmed to 4.75" x 6.75".

Metallic black was die-cut three times with the Cityscape die (Memory Box). Yellow cardstock was die-cut three times with the Cityscape Silhouette die (Memory Box). Silver cardstock was die-cut with the Sturdy Bridge die (Memory Box).

The matted Cat and the TV image panel was adhered to the colored television listing, then the various cityscape and bridge dies were layered over the base of the image panel. The image panel was adhered to a 5x7 card.
