Now that we are in October it is time to start planning for Halloween. Retro Rubber Challenge Blog is no different, our theme is Boo! It’s Halloween, so come and play along and share your Halloween themed creation.
I knew I wanted to use this black cat stamp and die from Hampton Art that I bought last year in 2015 and found a few more stamps to accent this scary furry feline.
First the very old Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers moon image from about 1998 is stamped on cream cardstock in Versa Mark Persimmon and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Using a sponge dauber a bit of Versa Mark Thatched Straw is added to make the moon glow a bit. The moon is masked with a circle die cut and the rest of the back ground color is inked with Versa Mark Night Sky and an ink blusher. The sentiment by Hampton Art (2015) is stamped in Delicata Black Shimmer and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
The cat is stamped on cream cardstock Delicata Black Shimmer and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The matching die cut creates a quick embellishment that is easy to pop up. The eyes were colored with Memento Dual Marker in Cantaloupe.
The fence was fun to create using Unity’s Grainy Background which I believe I’ve had for a couple of years. One of the stamp purchases where the date was not recorded. I stamped the image twice on Kraft cardstock in Versa Mark Jumbo Java. The image was cut into 3/8” strips, with one end trimmed into a point to create the wooden picket fence. The fence is assembled and adhered to the card with dimensional foam adhesive. The black cat is perched above and adhered with dimensional foam adhesive. The card base has the matching Versa Mark Persimmon inked around the edges before the card is completely assembled.
