Black Cat ATC

I won this wonderful stamp and die set from Kat Scrappiness, Toil and Trouble awhile back and really wanted to use it for Halloween. This year seems to have gone by without my making even one Halloween card, so I had to remedy that today. I used some dictionary print paper, which I inked up and then overstamped with an ATC background by Lost Coast Designs. The layered black cat image is by Kat Scrappiness, as is the sentiment. If you look at the background text, you will see that it includes part of a definition of arsenic..perfect for a Halloween ATC, right?

  11. Perfect background for a Halloween ATC. Great color choices.

  12. I don't know whether or not to comment on the dictionary entry behind the all I will say is that "arses" is the plural for more than one word!! LOL. The background stamping over the text is fabulous!!
    This is a great Halloween ATC. I love that layering cat stamp and didn't know you even had that set. Your sentiment is perfect for this spooky little card.
