May Pumpkin

Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge: May Anything Halloween

Playing along with the May Anything Halloween challenge with Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge blog today. For my card, I chose a cat with pumpkin from a Recollections stamp set as well as a spider stencil which was inked with GKD’s soft stone ink. My center portion of the card layer was sponged using Hero Arts butter bar to orange soda ombre ink pad. The patterned paper as well as the sentiment and spiders are Simon Says Stamp (Spook Up Some Fun stamp set).

Always fun challenge and this month’s mood board inspired the pumpkins out of me.

Thanks for stopping by for a peek. Hard to believe one more week of the month of May.

    1. Thanks, Bonnie, that scrawny cat and slightly crooked sentiment just seemed right for a Halloween card.

  1. Cute card. Although I’m not into spiders, the ones on the card are cute and harmless. The spiderweb stencil is a great background.

    1. LOL, Judy, the spiders were an afterthought for me….I’m not a spider fan either IRL.

    1. Thanks, Golda, I was happy with the blended panel and didn’t want to cover too much of it up.
