So.... I had the words "Krafty" and "Black" floating around in my head for this challenge -- and of course the next word I thought of was CATS! So this fall kitty image was perfect! I colored using Copics adding a little airbrushing around the edges. I wanted the mailbox to look kind of weathered so I blotted some ink off using the Blender Pen. Look close at the DP in the background -- see the tiny little black cats (and skulls, yuk). I love the little kitty cats!!! The paper is from Basic Grey's Eerie Collection and it was a greenish beige color -- but then I airbrushed with some Orange, lighter and darker-- here and there, changing it up to go with my card. I had to get some Kraft paper in there too, so I added two blocks that I cuttlebugged behind my image and the card base is Kraft card stock as well.

I used the paper piercer to add some pricks around the edges of my Nestie. I love jute string and thought it was a good pairing with the card, using my Bow Easy to make a five loop bow, then tying on some extra tails and fraying the hanging strings. Finished card size is 5x7.
