Bewitching & Bad Kitty Week - Day 3

August 16, 2017

Hello friends,

Katie Gehring here to share some inspiration featuring the Bad Kitty stamp set and coordinating Elle-ments dies.  A list of the Avery Elle products that I used on this card (with links) can be found at the end of my post.

This bad kitty rules the night, especially around Halloween.  I stamped, colored and die cut the kitty and her witches hat from white card stock.  Next, I set about building the background for the card.  

First, I inked a panel of watercolor card stock with three shades of Distress Oxide inks- Faded Jeans, Wiled Violet and Picked Raspberry. I sprayed the panel with water and blotted the droplets to create the starry night effect.   Once the panel was dry, I highlighted a few of the stars with a white colored pencil to help them stand out a bit more against the background. 

I die cut some of the elements from the new Cityscape Elle-ments die.  I adore this set of dies as it has features that make it perfect for both Halloween and Christmas! After die-cutting the moon from yellow card stock, I sponged some Distress Oxide ink in Fossilized Amber along the one edge and I stamped the "Happy Halloween" sentiment in black ink in the center of the moon. 

Once the background was complete, I used the Double Pierced Rectangles die to trim the panel and create a border around the edge of my A2 note card. 


Thanks so much for stopping by!
