Cats and Pumpkins

Good afternoon, the temperatures fell this afternoon, it was so nice to have the doors open and air blowing through the house. Fall is finally arriving I just hope that we have seen the end of the high temps.

Along with Fall comes Halloween and today's card is such a cute Halloween scene:

Halloween Cats is a digi stamp from Lili Of The Valley. This was my second attempt at coloring the image. My cats on the first one were a touch too dark and you couldn't quite make out their features. 
I colored the image with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. I followed Mindy Baxter's tutorial for creating a Halloween background which I think turned out well and really shows off the characters. 
The image is actually framed so I colored this in black rather than adding a mat layer to it.
 I made a 5 x 7 inch card base and matted this with orange and black card. The design paper is a free digital paper which I felt coordinated well. I stamped my Trick or Treat Sentiment on orange card and matted this with black. After arranging my image and sentiment I placed black pearls to balance out the design.

Lili of The Valley used to be my favorite stamp company when I lived in the UK as we lived in the same town as their store I was a frequent customer. I hadn't bought many stamps from them since moving to USA but now they do digital stamps and I don't have to wait for them to be shipped that has changed 😁
