Happy Catoween by Julie Lavalette


Hi Cheery Lynn fans, it's JULIE here today. Gosh I can't believe we are into October already and Halloween shall be here very soon. So today I am sharing some Halloween inspiration. I so love making these fun cards with all our fab dies.

I started off with an 8" X 5" card and matted and layered cardstock which I tattered at the edges. For my background I used inks and a web stencil to get a spooky effect, layering up my spiders web with foam strips.


My main cat I added the witches hat to, layering on the belt and buckle twice for added texture. I used the reverse side of my smaller cat on the left hand side of my card to give a mirror image. You don't tend to notice as much you have used the reverse side in black cardstock when you want your die cut facing the other way.


Frankenstein was cut out in several colours layering him up and highlighting his face and clothes with a Fine Liner pen.


My Skeleton I shadowed with black cardstock to help him pop.
