The year's first Halloween card!

I managed to hold off until September to start making Halloween cards - but the paper pad has been on my desk waiting for a few weeks now. I don't think this image is specifically Halloween, but the cats just really wanted it to be spooky, and as Maggie Mittens will tell you, I'm a sucker for doing what the cats want.

"What do you mean I don't fit? I sits, therefore I must fits."


The current Sweet Pea Stampers challenge is to use lots of layers, so I also went paper-crazy with three patterns plus an inky doily:


Supplies: digi stamp from ching chou kuik, Sweet Pea Stamps; Spectrum Noir markers; Sharpie white paint pen; Sakura Stardust glitter pen; Doodlebug papers; doily inked with Memento Tuxedo Black ink; classic small circle Nesties; glitter buttons & black rhinestones from the dollar store. 


The smidge of glitter pen on the cats' eyes (and goth girl's) makes them appear to glow - love it when it works the way I want it to! 

xoxo,
Jessi
