Two Owls and a pussycat!

Not sure if today has been productive...  I got some grungeboard,  and yes I like it,  but didn't manage cut it with my thin dies :-(   It took the embossing folder very nicely, once I'd sorted out the cutting plates.   After some research and asking friends seems like grunge board won't cut with thin dies, but it will take the sizzix dies.  Hey ho.

The last few days have been very creative.  First was my floppertunity with the owl,  rather than colouring with the promarkers I dabbed on the ink and got this fab effect.  For the background I cut a tag,  then used the spiders web stamp, used some copper embossing powder on it,   and the thick white enamel powder on the edges. 

I also finished my swap card,  think you can spot the spiders web!   I used two more stamps from the Hocus Pocus set,  for the main pic I went with the white enamel,   and I embossed the orange card behind it.  The theme/technique was 'embossing',  so I think I just about covered all bases.  I used some coredinations card for the main background - must remember that you can also scrunch it up,  I always seem to forget that.

But happy with this effort.

Finally the pussycat,  this was a birthday card for a group member.  The cat stamp is a favourite,  can't remember how long I've had it.  I got some copper and black embossing powder,  also had a go at recolouring the holographic powder with some alcoholic ink.  I used a spellbinders embossing folder for the copper card. 

Not sure what is on the agenda tomorrow,  there is something I have to plan... 

Thanks for stopping by.

Your finished cards are fabulous Cassidy! I love what you did with the spiders webb too - even though I hate the pesky little things!
That cat stamp is seriously gorgeous! I so love cats but haven't made anything with a cat on - still looking for the right image. I like how you've done four repeat images - your embossing looks so perfect too. I just slosh the powder around and make a bit of a mess to be honest - you're like my sister, her embossing is perfect too.
Hope you have a lovely weekend and get some craft done.
