Anyway, on to today! It's time for a new challenge over at CraftyCatz - and this week our lovely Dianne has chosen 'Halloween'! Now, I have a confession to make. I've never made a halloween card or creation before. It's not really something that I'm excited about - and spend most of my time on 31st October stopping Tilly the Dog getting too excited by all the kiddies coming to the door and also stopping my own 'little darlings' from eating the sweets I have in a bowl for the trick & treaters! So this was a new venture for me - but I surprised myself and actually enjoyed making it!
When I saw this cute 'Bat Cat' image from Mo's Digital Pencil I couldn't resist! We do sing the 'Batman' theme to our cat (but change the words to 'Fat Cat' as she is rather a podge!).
I've coloured the image with promarkers. The backing paper was made using the Big'n'Juicy 'Spice' inkpad and then drawing on some cobwebs. I then added some netting (shaded with the inkpad). The sentiment was printed on the computer (with a little clip art!) and then shaded, and added a couple of Poppystamps 'meadow leaf' die cuts. I then added lots of purple & black and a little sparkle with the ribbons and buttons from stash.
So I hope you like my first Halloween creation! So do pop over to CraftyCatz with your spooky offerings and join us! We're sponsored this week by
