Owls and witches and black cats

Sometimes I think I'm turning into a one-woman advert for the Graphics Fairy, but her images are so good and she's so generous letting us use them for free. This Hallowe'en card features more of her images

"Hallowe'en card front"

It's hard to see in the photograph, but the main image is decoupaged and highlighted with glitter, especially the witch's eyes and the pumpkin cut-outs. That's a very large, fat owl there. Guess he must have eaten a lot of mice! Now where is that black cat...?

"Hallowe'en card inside showing pop-up black cat"

He pops-up out of nowhere - this card uses the Sizzix twister pop-up die for the mechanism, so as the card is opened, the cat twists round to face you. Some of my precious Tim Holtz' Lost and Found paper stash was used for the lettering - the grungy look goes quite well with the feel of the card. The cat's eyes were highlighted in promarker and then covered in glossy accents. He looks just like our little Lucky :)
