D2D Spooky Halloween and OWH card

  This week at D2D (designed2delight) the digital image is a cute cat hiding behind a pumpkin.

  I used DSP from K&C Company for the background- I stitched that onto the base with Silver Metallic thread on my sewing machine. Next, I used my new ‘bats’ Sizzix folder on a bright green cardstock, and highlighted the bats with a black stamp pad. I used a a deckle Nestability for the image which I colored with Copic markers. I used Creative Inspirations Paint for the yellow ‘insides’ of the pumpkin so it would be shimmery. I added glitter rub-ons by Momenta for the bat, the spider and the spider web. I added a computer generated sentiment- No Guts?
 Fir my next cars,  I used another D2D image for a card to send to Operation Write Home.  You can read about OWH at the above link- they are celebrating a birthday and there are TONS of challenges to make cards for soldiers (and many companies are offering Free Digital images too).  I used the OWH Stars and Stripes Sketch for my CAS card.  The card is also for the Double Delights challenge- use a D2D image for the OWH cause- you get a FREE digi when you play along.

I watercolored and used Copics on the image. The DSP is from SU
