Measurements: image panel before borders 2 x 3 7/8, striped panel 2 3/16 x 4 1/8, top left purple 1 ½ x 15/16, green 1 ½ x 2 1/16, bottom strip 7/8 x 3 7/8.
The orange panel is cut Ό smaller than the base. Around that image panel is orange layers 1/16 and purple is 1/8.
In real life the orange is just a bit brighter on the panel and layers, but its close enough and was a fun card to make!
-The base of the card is stamped with the CHF cheesecloth image, the orange with CHF canvas then ink distressed
-The background is designer paper which I ink distressed and I did some stamping on the striped paper and a bit of paper piercing.
-I first determined the fence position, lined up the cat then set the fence aside and stamped the cat. I added the eye and ear color with Prismacolor pencils. With a VersaMark pen I covered the cat and heat embossed with clear powder to act as my resist.
-Tore a post it note and mask off the sky to sponge on the grass area.
-I didnt worry about masking off the grass since its dark. I sponged the sky starting with yellow, orange on top of yellow and eggplant at the top, black distress ink all around the edge and heavy on the right top corner.
-Stamped the tall weeds image then glued on the fence.
-The bats were sculpted with a metal ball stylus. I first score straight lines for the wings and body then turn it over and use the large ball to roll circles for each section of the wings and the body. I do this on a folded paper towel. The bats are glued to the card.
-The boo sentiment is a double layered sticker.
I like this cat; its not a real scary image and reminds me of my SILs cat named Spooks who went to kitty heaven many years ago.
