Toile and a Kitty: Day 6 of the 31 Days of Halloween

Hello! It's time for Day 6 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! Today I have a card that came together pretty quickly. I started off with a Tim Holtz cat stamp that I got in my prize pack from last year's 31 Days. Then, I found a cool stamp I had forgotten about. A toile stamp that has been creepified. So there's witches, skulls, tombstones. I tell ya, if I found this in fabric form, I would totally be making some new curtains! Or a skirt...or something.

If you click on the photo to see it bigger, you'll see all of the little details. This stamp is from Recollections, which is Michaels' brand.

My background paper is from K & Company, I love the leaves on it. My sentiment is from Tiddly Inks. 

I almost forgot about my washi tape! Also from Recollections. Love those crows. I hope you've liked my piece for today. I hope to have some non paper crafts up soon. If time allows it! Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed on my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!

Hi Love the spooky cat he looks really mean.. Love those papers to.

Hugs Erin xx
Really loving your project. Great fabric.. it was worth having a close up look. Fantastic cat image.
Great card! I love the toile, and if it were fabric I'd have to have some of too! That cat stamp is pretty cool, as well--very 3D.

I know you have aleady thought about stamping it onto fabric. Maybe to make an accent pocket or a bandana...

How did you get the edges to look curled or frayed?
I am trying to see if you added something or if that is the paper itself.

Such a great cat. Full of piss and vinegar. Interesting layout. Itworks wonderfully
Alison said…
Great question, and I'm sorry I didn't mention it in my post. I used a distressing tool from Heidi Swapp to get that edge. It's basically a disc with a small triangle cut out that has a teeny piece of a razor in it. I think Tonic has one too. It's reminiscent of a thread cutter.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
