October will be here soon! So, I decided to make something for Halloween this week since it is my favorite time of the year. For this week’s post, I made a tag that I can attach to a small gift bag of Halloween treats.
I started out by stamping the Surprised Kitty stamp on white cardstock. I colored her with Copic markers. I wanted her to look like a black cat for Halloween and also so that she would look like my own cat, Elphaba. The stamp does have quite a bit of detail, so it would look great in any color! For her eyes, I went over the green with a Versamark pen and then added Viva Las Vegastamps! own Ultra High Gloss Clear Embossing Powder and then heated. After that, I cut out the cat, cut the head off of the neck, and then inked my edges.
For the tag, I stamped the Trick or Treat! saying and then colored green with a Copic marker. I tinted the whole tag with Dusty Concord Distress ink and then misted with Ritzy Ditzy Glitz from PK Glitz to give a nice green shimmer to the tag. I like it because it contains alcohol to dry super fast without any spots. I distressed and inked my edges to make the tag look heavier like canvas.
I used a Spellbinders die to make the orange and black circles, and the attached the cat’s head with black popdots to the orange circle and then I glued his neck right under his chin, but flat on the paper. I wanted him to have a neck, but I wanted the head to pop out in front of it. After that, I attached some coordinating ribbons and I was done!
That’s it for this week! Thanks for stopping by. Please be sure to stop by the Viva Las Vegastamps! blog where you can see all of the design team’s projects in one place as well as find some cool ideas and techniques to inspire you.
