Cat and Mouse (posted by Judith)

Hi Folks, I have another clean and simple Halloween card for you today, using the new Autumn Fairy stamp sheet. I made this card in the same way as my earler CAS sample, masking off the top and bottom of the card with Post it Notes. I punched a circle from masking tape to create a moon shape and placed this on the background. Using Distress Inks, I coloured the background using a sideways motion, blending the colours to create an night sky. I added lots of yellow and grey around the moon.

I stamped the large mushrooms from one of the fairy stamps, by masking off the part of the stamp that I didn't want to use before I inked up the stamp. I then added the fairy cat on top of the largest mushroom. I used the fairy mouse from the Bewitched Moonlight stamp sheet and drew connecting lines between the two sets of grasses with a permanent black pen, adding a couple of extra strands of grass. I have added white highlights on this card as in my previous sample, which is called the 'bandana technique'. Some bats and a sentiment finish the card.





The Design Team have made some beautiful samples using the new fairy stamps. Please keep checking back for more inspiration over the coming days. Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx
