Kittens in Costume

Our Halloween festivities have ended and once again we had over 100 zombies, vampires and princesses that visited our house this evening. I thought I should probably share these cards before November!

Kittens in Costume is one of my favorite Halloween stamp sets and I think it may be the first set I bought from Close to My Heart many years ago. For these cards I used two of the four images from the set and the images are fairly small, the card size is 4.25 x 4.25. Both images are colored using Tombow and Close to My Heart markers and then blended using a Tombow Colorless Blender.

I told myself if I was going to start stamping again that I was going to limit my spending and try to resist all the latest and greatest supplies and images. So far, that’s not working to great! This week I made a quick stop at Hobby Lobby to look at Halloween decorations, of course I had to visit the stamp aisle, I was excited to see that all stamps were 50% off… bought a bunch of House Mouse and Happy Hoppers. The week before I attended at Stampin Up party and bought more goodies. I may have to challenge myself to a no spending challenge.

Resist, Resist, Resist!

Thanks for visiting me here at Inky Impressions, Jovi.
