31 Days of Halloween - Day 18

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

More Halloween holiday greetings to you all from Laurie!  Our Lost Coast Designs Halloween Blog Hop continues but we've added a twist to the last two weeks - Halloween themed projects featuring cats and dogs.  It's pretty easy to turn any cat or dog into a Halloween pet, and you can see how I've done that for this card,

I used the Coffee Chihuahua stamp for this project and stamped him onto some light brown paper with black ink.  I restamped his head onto white paper so I could cut our his eyes and affix them atop the brown figure.  I added a bit of white Gel pen to his teeth and some gold pen to the studs in his collar.  I then cut him out.  The stamp has him holding a cup of coffee, so I cut that away and replaced it with a pumpkin sticker.  

My background is a piece of Tim Holtz Halloween paper that I stenciled with a spooky branches stencil.  After my background was stenciled, I edged it in black ink and affixed my Chihuahua as shown. I die cut a bat and the word "boo" out of black paper and added those, then layered the finished project with white.  

We would love to see your Halloween projects featuring cats and dogs, so please be sure to enter them for a chance to win some free stamps!
