Autumn is officially here, and in New England we are seeing lots of lovely color. And speaking of Autumn colors, Create with Connie and Mary challenge blog is featuring three.I immediately thought of Halloween so I created a fun card using one of the cats from the You Little Furball stamp set.
First I used the Lucky Stars embossing folder (from the Holiday Mini) to create a starry background on the Tangerine Tango card stock. It doesn't show up well in the photo but it's there! Then I cut a circle from Crushed Curry card stock and sponged it with Tangerine Tango ink. Next I stamped my cat onto the circle and colored his eyes with my Chalk Marker and gave it a little Rhinestone bling. The bats are from the Holiday Mini set, Holiday Home. They added just the right amount of scary.
My original thought was to use a traditional looking stockade fence made with the Hardware background stamp, Basic Black card stock and Whisper White ink, but it didn't look "halloweeny" enough so I cut it apart and made it a little bit rickety. Much better.
And to create my word bubble I used a Word Bubble framelit and stamped 2 different sentiments - both from the And Many More stamp set.
