All Wrapped Up!!!

Hello crafty friends: This week over at RETRO RUBBER  it's Halloween time!!! One of the most fun Holidays in the year so, we want to see your spooky, bewitching, mummylicious creations on our gallery.  I dug deep into my stash of Halloween stamps and found this one from Whipper Snapper called Mummy Cat, I just love this "spooky" half wrapped mummy kitty, I've had this stamp for at least 5 years.

I stamped the image onto a piece of Canson water color paper and made a mask of the moon, so I could sponge the sky with Broken China distress ink. I colored him with SU markers and an aqua painter, adding some Wink of Stella to the ripped strips of cloth. The big bat on the cat's tail is from the bargain bin at my local craft store, the flying witch is punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
I die cut the frame with the Fleur the Liz die set from Spellbinders.  The ghosts are stamped onto Tracing Paper with Dove Gray Stazon and then fussy cut, it was a bit hard to do this since this paper is super thin but I wanted them to look ethereal and I think I accomplished this. Here is a closer look.

I can't help but smile at this "frightening" scene.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment and the spider webs are from Inkadinkado and they've been in my Halloween stash for at least 5 years. 
Here is our banner to get you in the mood, we can't wait to see your cards in the gallery.

  12. Marie, you might try to make a scary scene but your images are always so darling. Great coloring (as Brian said, per usual!) and so much fun!!! I have the Martha Stewart witch punch and never use it anymore. But too cute to give up! Well done, teammate!!

  13. Wow! Love all the layers and attention to detail in the fun card. We had the same idea for a cat and a moon scene and yet they are so different!
