The Spooky Cat!!!

Hey Everyone!!!

Hope you're doing grrrrt!!!

the last few days have been both busy and fun... loads of super exciting stuff happening... and i am here to share one of those with you which went up on the Blackleaf Studio blog today... 

Today's post is about my first time attempts at some things... 
Warning: this post might be a little wee bit longer than my usuals but i hope i can manage to keep you going till the end :)

Tanvi @ Blackleaf Studios sent us some of these amazingly fun DP sheets for Halloween for us to play with... This was my 1st ever Halloween project and i sure did have a blast doing these... 
so let's roll and see what we've got...

To begin with  is the 'Spooky Cat Cap

Isn't she a darling... Blackleaf DP combined with some crimped solid sheets, some tulle ruffles and a 'boo' teaser with faux stitching to go with it... that head on the top was created using a small tennis ball... painted all over and then eyes popped out with an extra dollop of white paint...

Next in line is the 'Spooky Cat Purse

Blackleaf spooky cat and spider web DP sheets combined with some tulle ruffles, a button and some cute blackleaf embellishes ... and yeah, faux stitching...:)

these cute flowers on the sides are from Blackleaf too...
the sheets are super versatile... they are not only great as stand alones but also create magic when mixed and matched and combined to give a completely different look all together... 

love that web sheet specially... have reversed colours to match my project and added dat tiny rhinestone... 

Ghosh, i dint even spare a Halloween project 
with my 'bling mania' ... :D

Coming up is the 'Spooky Cat Treat Cone'

Blackleaf DP with some faux stitching, matching ribbons and feathers...
notice that tiny creepy creature that has crawled it's way right to the top??? 
that's my 'Spidy', the spider...

isn't he adorable!!!
a rough sketch of his body and eyes, cut out vaguely, coloured and his legs fixed and coloured too... (Thanks Mel)

have added a small wire spring at the back, 
which gives it a pop-out effect...

and yes, a generous coat of gloss and he's ready to crawl!!!

And last but not the least is the 'Spooky Cat Card'

Blackleaf skull DP, spider web DP, Spooky cat DP combined all into for this one... have burnt and distressed the edges of everything possible on this card... 

i was having so much fun doing this, din't realise the whole room was smelling of burnt ashes strong enuf to send my hubby in a tizzy!!! he came running to inform me dat something was burning and then went back fuming when he saw 'who' ws behind all this... lolzzz....

Some gross grain ribbon, a cat charm and an acetate pocket which i stitched with my mum's sewing machine... it's my very first attempt at real stitching ever on my card... ws wanting to do this for looong:)

that's a pull out Tag inside the acetate pocket...


and here's the inside view...
