Bats and Cats

Hey everyone!  Shanna here today with a card featuring everyone's favorite cat from the Hex Yeah stamp set and a spooky palette Candy Twist stenciled background!

I love making different backgrounds here lately, and the Candy Twist stencil from The Rabbit Hole Designs is so versatile!  I started out by ink blending a A2 bristol paper paper in some Purples and oranges.  Then I used Pixie Spray to temporarily adhere my stencil to my card and used Black Soot Distress Oxide all over the stencil.  It created a fun background for my Halloween card today!

My cat was stamped in Versa Clair Nocturne ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I watercolored the pumpkin with a Zig marker for a pop of orange and then fussy cut the image out.

I have a collection of 6x6 paper pads (it isn't just me!!) and found a Halloween pad that had an ephemera page that suited my design perfectly!  I stamped and embossed some bats the same way I did the cat directly only to the right aspect of the card panel.  I clustered my ephemera with my stamped image over the same corner I started my bats in.  Easy Peasy!!

I love when I can stretch a stamp set and use some of the smaller images as a focal point for a card.

That wraps up my post for today, I will be back next week for another trip down The Rabbit Hole!  Until then you can find me over on my blog, Caffeinated Craftiness or over on Instagram!
