Scaredy Cat


Hi everyone! Here's another card I made for the Can You Digi It "Creepy & Kooky" challenge. Have you ever seen a scared cat?!?  Little kittens look so cute when they arch their backs, fluff up their tail and hiss! My Bubby hasn't done that in a very long time so it was fun coloring this image and reminiscing. The image used on today's card is the Scaredy Cat digital stamp by Can You Digi It.


My card base is Black layered with White cardstock then Halloween Night patterned paper then a strip of Iron Gate patterned paper. The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers. I sponged Going Grey to create the sky. At the base of the image I added a piece of Black Cardstock finished on one side using the Grass Edge Punch. I wrapped some Charcoal Twine and an orange button threaded with some Charcoal Twine. The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on White Cardstock.
