I didn't used to make Hallowe'en cards, but I have gotten bitten by the bug (or spider, since it is Hallowe'en, heheh!) I now have a bunch of grandkids to give them to as well, so hey, I have joined in the fun! And fun it is, to make a spooky looking card (and still keep it cute, as that is after all, my wheelhouse!) I love how the cat on the ground is eyeing the tail of the next cat up on the pile, heheh, just so cat-like... he's going to pounce any second and you know it, heheh!
A big shoutout to Sylvie of Kaliscards for making me stop dead in my tracks (ha, another fright night reference there!) with her oh-so-gorgeous Got Peepers card!  Her card inspired my colour palette and I was so excited to copy-cat (heheh, yeah, cats were involved!) because she inspired me so much! Thank you Sylvie, for sharing your stunning Halloween card and for being such an inspiration!  Please go visit her blog and take a peek around.  She is really an amazing card artist!
I coloured my images with Copics, and used Distress Oxide inks for the background.  I had to make a mask for the moon and the main image before I sponged on the inks. I just had to be careful around the moon to preserved the bright yellow so that I could get that "moon glow" effect.  The trees were so easy - just die cut from the Tree Assortment die set, on black card paper.  The only tricky part was gluing all those thin branches.  I used the moon from the "Halloween Night" set.

  2. I just love this gorgeous creation Crissy. Sylvie is certainly a master blender, her cards are out of this world and she's so inspiring. As are you my friend! A constant source of inspiration and joy for me and this latest Halloween release is absolutely that! These cats are adorable. I've coloured up three, now I need to do this pumpkin pile stamp too, it's SOOO cute! I adore your gorgeous creation. Big hugs, Wends xoxo
