Purr-fect Pumpkin (StampArt Design by Kathryne)

Hi, everyone.  Today I'm sharing a Halloween card featuring a brand-new image from StampArt Design by Kathryne available at Whimsy Stamps.  Kathryne is one of the nicest people around, and I'm a big fan of her designs! You can see her new releases here. They're all adorable, but my favourite is this Purr-fect Pumpkin! I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils and fussy cut. Then I coloured the cat's head and paws again, fussy-cut, and mounted with foam tape, so he looks like he's popping out of the pumpkin.

I tried a new (to me) technique - the ink splatter - but I think I need more practice LOL!  I guess it's okay for a first attempt but I'd like to try it again and aim for smaller splatters.

The sentiment is also part of the Purr-fect Pumpkin file and it comes as a bonus with several other purr-fect sentiments.  Here are the other supplies used:

  • Die cuts:  Bat (Taylored Expressions Gothic Window Accessories), circle (Nellie's Multiframes)
  • Patterned paper:  Recollections, Dollarama
  • Watercolour paper:  Canson
  • Accents:  Gems (Dollarama)

I would like to support the following challenges:

MaryH said...

This is cute as can be. Kathryn is one of my favorite digi designers. Her images are cute without being 'cutesy', and those that I've used, I found very easy to design a card. Love the punkin & kitty, and what a delightful fall theme you've done. Your coloring is just wonderful, and I loved the spatters. (those are not so easy as they look to get them done properly. You did great!) A terrific idea to add the kitty's profile over the top as you did...such dimension. TFS & Hugs

I really like this card. There is great texture in the coloured images and I have to say I think that ink splatter is great. I actually like the look of the larger splats on this card.
