For Deb’s card, I used the Witch Whispers die set. Deb, this card was created and sent late, so the one you hopefully have received by now is a bonus card from my stash to make sure you received happy mail in time. 😉
The witch, cats and trees (from Tree Assortment) were die cut from black cardstock. The witch’s arm/hand was cut off (it sounds gruesome I know, but it is Halloween afterall 😂), flipped and “reattached” to make her look like she’s leaning against the fence post. The fence and grass patches were die cut from dark gray cardstock using the Slimline Fence die set then shaded with a foam blending tool and Black Soot distress ink (DI).
For the background, a moon mask was die cut from a Post-It note using a die in the Pierced and Stitched Circles die set and adhered onto a Bristol panel. Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot DI were then blended on with blending brushes to create the night sky. Lightly flicked on some water and blot with a paper towel to give it a bit of texture. The sentiment was cut out from a leftover Slimline Terror 1 toner card front piece that had been foiled with black Decofoil through a laminator. Assembled the card onto a top folding card base, then added some stars with a white gel pen to finish.

With today being National Cat Day, I like to add my card with the two cats to the Cat Lover’s Hop.
With the night sky and silhouettes, I like to also add to Just Add Ink challenge #627.
