Scaredy Cat

I really like this patterned paper but struggled for a while trying to figure out what to do with it. Once I pulled out this stamp set though it felt like everything finally fell into place.

The card base is Basic Black layered with a slightly smaller piece of Only Orange cardstock then a strip of Bo-Bunny Fright Night Words patterned paper. The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White using the Autumn Harvest stamp set then colored in using the Only Orange Watercolor Wonder Crayon and an Aqua Painter. The color didn't seem quite vibrant enough so I added some Only Orange chalk and the image popped right off the page. The texure also looks more like that of a true pumpkin.

I punched the corners of the PTI White cardstock using the Ticket Corner Punch then layered it on to a slightly larger piece of Basic Black cardstock. I added a small silver brad in each corner then attached it to the card base using Scotch Foam Mounting Tape. The sentiment was stamped in Basic Black on Green Galore cardstock then punched out using the Modern Label Punch. To finish off the card I added a Black Felt Scaredy Cat.

Thanks for stopping by!
