Tim Holtz Crazy Cat Card with Distress Inks and Gansai Tambi watercolours

It’s coming up to one of my favourite times of the year, Halloween. I’m a fan of things spooky and kooky so it seemed like a great opportunity to create a Halloween card. I chose to use Tim Holtz crazy cat stamps using the accessories from the Crazy Birds Mini & Things stamp set, the image of the particular cat I chose reminds me of my very own crazy cat!


I chose to make this a witchy cat complete with hat, broomstick and pumpkin lantern. For additional interest I used the bats from the new My Favourite Things Frightful Friends stamp set, these are so cute and you have to include Bats at halloween.

To watercolour this card I usedĀ Gansai Tambi’s for the cat and accessories and then used Distress Inks to create a grungy background. To see how I created this card you can watch my YouTube video below:
