Happy Halloween!

Halloween cards for my grandchildren.......
Nothing scary.....just plain Halloween fun!
I used a Penny Black Transparent set.....spooky!.....for all 3 cards. These cats are so FUN!
I used watercolors for all of the images.
The "moon" back ground on this card is sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists: Lemon Meringue, Candlelight and Dreamsicle. I masked the cat so he isn't sparkly. I added "stars" to the blue paper with Saphire Stickles.

For the next 2 cards, I stamped the cat first. Then I masked it to stamp the pumpkins. I added "stars" to the sky with a stamp from PB "crystalline" using Versamark.
I added a mask over the pumpkins leaving the mask in place over the cat, too, and then created the background with sponged on Distress inks: Brushed Corduroy, Black Soot, Broken China, Faded Jeans. The stars resisted the ink. I added Stardust Stickles to give them sparkle. I also added Stickles to the bat, pumkins, ground and the cat's hat using Black Diamond and Yellow.

This cat with his cape has the same Distress background with Stickles added for sparkle. His cape and mask are covered with Saphire and Black Diamond Stickles.

Hope your Halloween isn't too scary!
.....just plain FUN!
