Just Us Girls #366 - Photo Week

It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls and I cannot believe I'm already making Halloween cards!  Where did the time go?  Anyway, Chris chose this great photo to inspire us.
I'm using some old and new products here today.  I used a new stencil and sponged carved pumpkin and wilted violet inks through it.  Then I went to work on the main image.  I stamped the pumpkin on the circle die cut and also made a mask from it.  I put the mask on the stamped pumpkin and stamped the cat.  The mask makes the cat look like he's standing the pumpkin.  I also stamped some bats to fill in the white space.  Before adhering the main image to the card base, I put some washy tape behind it.  The last thing I did was die cut the sentiment from white and black cardstock and layered them together.
I used this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches as my starting point.
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our October guest on the JUGs blog.

Lisa, I love that background - beautifully done and I also love that little scene you created with the bats, pumpkin and kitty. The polka dot pieces work really well to ground your focal image. Thanks so much for having me along as GD this month
