When Black Cats Prowl

This is my card on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog today using the new stamp set

All the products I have used are listed below for your convenience,

Impression Obsession Fence Die
Round Punch

 One of the first things I did was to stamp the bats then fussy cut them out.
I added Versamark to each bat then sprinkled with Fleur De Lis embossing powder
and heat set from below.
This is a nice thick embossing powder and it is so fun to work with,
I just love how these turned out.


I stamped all my images (cat and pumpkin and single cat) using the 
Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp platform.
then cleaned all the stamps
with the new Nuvo Stamp Cleaning Pad and Nuvo Stamp Cleaning Solution.
All my images were then fussy cut out.

The background of my card has been spritzed with Nuvo Mica Mist Violet Lustre.
While that was drying I used a large round punch for my moon, then inked it with 
Nuvo Diamond Hybrid Ink Pads, Rose Garden and Sunset Serenade.
I die cut a fence using an IO fence die, then applied Versamark and Apple Green embossing powder.
All of elements were adhered down with 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and 1/4" Tear-ific Tape.

The sentiment was stamped with Versmark 
then embossed with Black Fine Detail embossing powder.
I colored the pumpkin with Copics then added some sparkle using 
Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glimmer Gloss.
The black cats were coated with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive craft glue, then sprinkled
with Galaxy Night Glitter.  This glitter is fun as it has other colors in besides just black.
For the cats eyes I added a touch of green using the pen form the set of Nuvo Glitter Markers Northern Lights.

OMG, I've gone from one detail to the next on this, thinking each is so awesome! First, the stamps -- LOVE! I have the sentiment in another stamp and it's a favorite, but those cats! But, seriously, the bats look amazing with the embossing. If I had such cool powders I'd probably emboss more. I need to do more with the powders I have. Love the splattery purple sky background, too. Halloween cards are so fun!
