Saturday Card: Halloween

Today I share a card for Halloween with you
and a tutorial about how I made the background.

So lets start with a piece of white cardstock
a pot-it note and a circle die or circle punch.
Cut a circle into the post it note and
lay this on top of the white card.
Color the circle with yellow ink and a blending tool.

Take the post it note of the card stock and now
use the punched out circle on top of the 
yellow colored moon.
Change the inkpad to an orange color.

Color with the orange and a blending tool around the moon.
Use the orange for 3/4 of the card and finish off
with an earthly color.

Now use the tree stamp from
Michael Strong's Spooky Silhouettes stampset.

I finished off the card with the cat cut with a die
from the Halloween Confetti dies.
Also I added a pumpkin made with one of the
stamps from the Pumpkin Harvest set
stamped on shrink plastic to fit with the tree.
I stamped it on clear shrink plastic because the
orange from the background shines through.
Little yellowgemstones for the cat's eyes.
On the inside I also cut the cat and this
way the purple of the card comes through.

Thank you for looking!

Have a creative day!

This is super cool, Hetty!! Thanks for breaking down the scene so simply for us - I have tried to use my Distress inks to blend colors to create the scenes similar to yours, but I am often not successful. I will give this a whirl this weekend now that I have your blog post to refer to. Love that cat negative on the inside - fantastic touch!
