August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

THANK YOU for stopping by to enjoy 
our August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop 
featuring this month's SOTM:
Purr-fect Halloween S1608

I am the 23rd of 24 fellow consultant artists
participating in this month's hop!
If you have just joined us, you can start here and continue on
to the next blog participant (as this is a circular hop), and so on.
  If you've just arrived here from JEAN's BLOG 
then you are on the correct path.

First, I've created this standard-size this card (above) using all-NEW products,
including the NEW Rustic Home Fundamentals papers (Z3262) with Pansy and Tangerine
cardstocks (NEW colors X5782 and X5786). The hat and mask were colored with Lavender
and Marigold ShinHan Touch Twin markers. As you can see, the heart was cut from
Tangerine cardstock using the smallest of the NEW Hearts Thin Cuts (Z3260).

 This card (above) is a tad different than the first version of it
that I shared above. I later decided to give this cat a "batty" bow-tie! lol.

 I also want to show you that this stamp can be used for more than just Halloween
The products I used above include the NEW Rustic Home Fundamentals papers (Z3262)
with NEW Sea Glass cardstock (X5789) and a little bit of Retired "Cloud Nine" B&T paper
(to make the crazy-looking cat). Notice also that the grey cat on the left card was colored
with watercolor paints, while the one on the right was colored
with a Warm Grey (WG4) marker.

Finally, here's a view of all of the images included in this fun stamp set:
Now you can continue on with the hop...
