CAT IN THE HAT!

I love making Halloween cards and this Gary Robertson , "Cat in the Hat Jack", image was definitely calling me! His drawings have such fabulous detail and I love his shading! This stamp is available in the IO Store Now!


I have stamped the image twice, fussy cut the pumpkin and cat for added dimension and colored with Copics. A few of the leaves that surround the base of the pumpkin are also fussy cut and raised.


The "cat claws" and border were from the inside strip of the Border Duo 1 Die Set.



These are the Copics that I used.

The more blogs you visit each day and leave a comment...the better chance you will have to win a $25 Impression Obsession Gift Certificate!
Thanks for looking and see you tomorrow for more of this exciting new release!
