Cat, Bats, and a Full Moon

     Back to Halloween silhouettes.  I played a bit with my ProMarkers to create the background on this one.  I used a scrap piece of watercolor paper which lets alcohol inks spread naturally.  After applying the colors with ProMarkers, I wet a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol (damp, not sopping) and rubbed the entire background.  After that dried, I went back over just the moon with a yellow ProMarker to define it a bit more.

     The silhouette cat and bats, plus the sentiment went on after the background was completely dry.  I ironed the paper to make sure it was completely flat and that took the texture out of it and made it very smooth.  I colored the eyes, then added a sheer ribbon and bow, and finally adhered the image piece to a card base and trimmed the top and bottom to fit.

    1. Anne, they are individual silhouette stamps. The cat isn't necessarily Halloween but with the bats added, I thought it made a great Halloween 'black cat.' :-D

  3. Fabulous card NanaConnie. Love the gorgeous eyes on the cat. Thank you for your comment on my Blue Pumpkin card. I had no idea about the teal coloured pumpkins and their significance to Type 1 Diabetes, very interesting. Thank you for the information and for your lovely comment. xxx
