Glitter n Sparkle DT - Use Some Orange

Hello, everyone! It's Sunday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog. This week we would like you to Use Some Orange.  I had fun playing with an adorable kitty image from Bugaboo Digi Stamps called Halloween Window - Cat, which I coloured with my Prismacolor pencils. You all know how I love kitties!

I wanted my card to look as though this window was on an old haunted house, so I scored lines across the card and then inked the edges with distress ink and also around the window, which is popped up slightly with thin foam tape.  

I added lots of fun die cuts from my Taylored Expressions Gothic Window Accessories dies, using black snippets/left overs.  For the black cat die cut, you'll notice I used the negative - something a little different!  It was left over from a previous card I made, and I didn't want to waste it! The spider web and sentiment are rubber stamps from Craftsmart and Studio G, respectively. Lastly I added a spider charm and a few gems, one on the spider in the image and 3 more by the sentiment.  

Please come over and join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Use Some Orange challenge. We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs again this week, so I hope you'll play along!

Oh this is super cute! I love kitties too. I think I even have this image. I love what you have done with the BG on this card - the card base. Beautifully done and so much fun. I'm not sure what you mean by you've used the negative, do you mean you printed it differently? Am I being daft? LOL Thank you so much for joining us this week at Come and Get It. I hope you join us again. Thanks for sharing! ~ Lizzy DT
