Hello! It’s Lisa here today and I have a fun Halloween card to share with all of you today using the new Avery Elle Bad Kitty Set. Since this set is smaller, it’s also lighter on the wallet which is always a good thing! But don’t underestimate it’s size, this set can still pack a big and spooky punch…
To create this card I started by stamping my pumpkin and cat onto separate cardstock. I then used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers in TN5, TN8, OR1, OR2, CT2, IG5, IG6, IG8, DR1, DR2, LG2 to color them in before cutting them out. When I am handing cutting an image I like to go over the edges with my Memento Marker in Tuxedo Black. This may seem a little redundant, but trust me it can make a big difference. After these guys were are set for my card I started working on my cardbase. First, I stamped the bats to look like they would be flying out of the pumpkin. Next, came my spider web, spider and sentiment in the opposite corner. To achieve a night sky I used a mix of Distress Oxide and Distress Inks. My spider web seemed to fade more into the background than I wanted it to so I traced over the image and drew a line to my spider with a white gel pen. I like the shadow effect it gave too.
A few mist splatters later and my cardbase was ready for my witch kitty and pumpkin. I layered the pumpkin with foam adhesive for dimension to my scene. Everything looked cute, but I still felt like it was lacking one more thing… bling! So I added one red rhinestone to the cats collar and called it a day.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don’t forget to join in our biweekly challenge, as this time MarkerPOP is giving away a nice Nuvo Goodie Pack!
