Midnight cats



Monday means time for this weeks Prickly Pear DT piece which this week is Halloween, one that always comes a bit hard to me.

I started with creating my background with Dylusions and a TH clock as a mask, then liberal helpings of Frantage. The Midnight Cats were stamped with versamark and embossed with detail white onto black cardstock and yet more Frantage and purple gilding wax, the I stamped Shawn of the Dead with black archival ink and rubbbed more of the gilding wax to add a bit of shimmer.

Happy Monday to you all.

Very effective way about Halloween - one I tend to avoid too - I've managed to get around it before by going the Fantasy route via Tolkien with a Hobbit House & owls! I like the way the circle about the cats is echoed by the TH clock.

I don't 'do' Halloween either but I'm so glad you did. The background with the clock, inks and Frantage is fab. Quite like the zombie too.
