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!

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

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.

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
