Cat and Craggly Tree

I guess summer is over --- according to the cards I've been doing lately! What can I say... Halloween and Holiday cards are fun and this is the first year I have made Holiday cards for a Holiday and the Holiday wasn't the next week!!!!
OK--- on to this card... spooky, right? I used a cat's eye white and circle mask to create the moon, stamped my Craggly Old Tree with the Owl... ummm, I took some liberties with the tree and added some more branches... I needed a little fill in for some dead space! I used brown markers and fine tip pens to fill in and shadow on the tree. And look at the cute little kitty! It's the teeniest cat stamp I own (I think) from A Muse. I used copper and white cat's eye inks to rub over the panel (originally River Rock) to try and create a dusky foggy feel... I had a Happy Halloween sentiment to add-- but decided I liked it better with out, so I'll probably stick it on the inside.
