Bump In The Night......




It's Saturday already and time for another Penny Black Challenge - This week the theme is "Bump In the Night!!" so a spooky halloween theme.

I had to adapt one of my images to make it look Halloweeny!! as I didn't really have any appropriate stamps for this, so Puss is all dressed up in his fancy dress costume, pretending to be some sort of "Halloween" Bee (I think !! LOL).I used rust coloured Coredination cardstock, purple felt and black patterned paper from Debbi Moore Designs, Puss was coloured with watercolours and cosmics.
The swirl on the corner is a Sizzlit die and wasn't sure if my Cuttlebug would cut it but after some faffing about eventually it worked, but it wouldn't cut on the felt...
I hand cut my tab and added my sentiment.
I also got a really nice surprise today from Mr Postie - I won a prize draw in Craft Stamper and received some Tim Holtz spinners and sprockets - Yaaay!! and they are brilliant so of course I just HAD to use them on my card!!
