Let's Scare Up Some Fun

Hello, everyone.  Here is a Halloween card I made last night. 

As soon as I saw this cute freebie kitty image at Sami Stamps I knew I wanted to make a card, and I finally got the chance.  I coloured the image with pencils and mounted on black cardstock.  I started by covering a white card base with patterned paper and then affixed the image at an angle.  I stamped the sentiment on a purple scrap, edged in black, and affixed with foam tape.  Lastly I embellished with three orange buttons, a felt cat and bat, and a shiny holographic spider web.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Digi stamp:   Sami Stamps
  • Stamp:  Sentiment (Inkadinkado)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Coloured pencils:  Prismacolor
  • Patterned paper:  Dollarama
  • Accents:  Buttons and other embellishments (dollar store)
