Black Cat

Hope you have all had a wonderful weekend!


I'm here today to share the Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week, 'Black Cat'.

You know how I love to mask, and to create scary skies, so this one was fun to make!

Repeat Impressions #2322-G Black Cat, Repeat Impressions #2308-E Bats, Repeat Impressions #1139-W Halloween, Memory Box "Blackbird" DP, Memory Box Die "Madison Window Small", Kraft Cardstock, Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Broken China, Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Dusty Concord, Memento Tuxedo Black Dye Ink, Adhesive, Dimensional Squares.
 
The Black Cat image was stamped on white cardstock, and fussy cut.  I die cut a window, using the Memory Box Madison Window Small. Once I had it cut, I sponged it to look aged and eerie.  I trimmed a scrap of cardstock to fit behind the window, masked off a moon, and began sponging until I got the right shade of eeriness.  Stamped the bats, and put the panel and window together.  Adhered it to a scrap of DP, and popped the black cat up in front with dimensional squares.  Voila - pretty quick!

Now, I know my fellow Rockstars have some very fabulous Black Cat projects to share!
Check them out - you will love them!

OMGosh, GF....you ROCKED this image challenge. You even had me scared....I remember poking around old closed homes when I was a kid and the windows looked just like this....deja creepy all over again. Placing those bats in the window...well..I think you took scare a little too close to scream. Fabulous way to showcase Mr. Silly. :>)
