Bewitched Cat

Hello Everyone! Today I'll be posting two Halloween cards, this is the first one. To create this card I quickly rolled some ink onto the cardstock using a brayer, misted it with shimmer mist just over the brayered area, and added a few splatters of ink. Next I stamped and heat embossed the Witch's Broom and the Scardy Cat. Lastly I stamped the sentiment, added some white to the cat's eyes, and attached a few sequins.

Supplies Used:

Just For Fun Rubber Stamps ~ Small Scardy Cat, Witch's Broom, Halloween  Greetings sentiment, white cardstock, midnight cardstock, embossing ink, embossing powder, Distress ink ~ chipped sapphire, archival ink ~ jet black, brayer, shimmer mist ( I make my own with Pearl Ex ~ for this mist I used antique silver, gum Arabic and water ), white gel pen, embossing folder, and a few sequins.

Finished card size is 4.25 x 5.5 ~ A2

Happy Creating!!!

O is for One

Hello Everyone! Hope you are all doing great! Just popping in to post this card I created for a few fun challenges ~ Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers where the challenge is to use One color, I chose green,  Visible Image where the challenge is to Make It Sparkle, Stamping Sensations ~ Things with Wings, Vandicrafts' Artistry Challenge ~ Anything Goes, and Scrap It Girl ~ Stencils or Masks.

 The background was created using a Gelli plate, acrylic paints, brayer, plain white cardstock, and a stencil. The butterfly was colored with Distress inks and I added sprinkles of fairy dust glitter to the wings.

 I tried to get a decent photo of the sparkling areas ~ definitely not the best photographer...but it really is quite sparkly :D

Supplies Used:

white cardstock, forest green cardstock, Archival ink, Distress inks, Gelli plate by Gelli Arts, acrylic paints, fairy dust glitter, Swirls stencil by Clear Scraps, stamps from Visible Image ~ Butterfly and Good Luck from the Good Luck Cat Set (I probably have an older version of this set ~ the text is a little different than the one shown on the website).
