Too Cute to Spook for The Paper Shelter for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #143 for the 4th of October, 2020

Hi All!
Welcome to my post about my card for the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog.
Here is my card:

The sponsor for this challenge is:
The Paper Shelter

Prize is 3 images!

We were given the digital stamp Too Cute to Spook which I have digitally printed on to X-Press It Blending Card. I also printed an extra bat image on to X-Press It Blending Card. I have cut a frame around the main image with my paper cutter, followed by colouring with the following Copics:
  • cat - C3, C5, C7, C9
  • cat nose - R30, clear shimmer pen
  • cat mouth and ears - R83
  • pumpkin - Y21, YR12, YR16, YR18, YG11, YG23, YG25, G07, clear shimmer pen
  • light in pumpkin - Y11, Y35, clear shimmer pen
  • bat - BV01, BV13, BV08, R83, white gel pen, clear shimmer pen
  • ghosts - V20, V22, V25, RV04
  • hill - BG70, BG72, BG75, BG78
  • sky - V000, V01, V04, B12, B14, B63, B66, B69
  • outline - B66
I have adhered the coloured image on to a white card from Envelope Solutions
I coloured the extra bat the same as above, fussy cut it and using dimensional adhesive foam, adhered it above the bat from the main image.
I also printed the sentiment from Lil' Devil Marci from La-La Land Crafts - coloured it with V04, outlined it with B66 and then outlined the letters with purple Wink of Stella. I notice that you can only buy the rubber stamp now, although I used the digital version.

As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her fantastic monthly classes.

Here is a close-up of the colouring :
