πŸ’€ Skelly Cat Train of Fun πŸ’€
card by Leigh
 
My grand finale inspiration for the 31 Days of Halloween Hop and Cat Lovers Hop for you today is a FURRtastic card bristling with spooktacular eye candy in every corner featuring Cats Galore, Carved Skelly Cat, Kitty Pumpkin Hat, Batleigh Bats, Party Balleigh Monster, Ghost Balleigh Monster and the Vampire Balleigh Monster setπŸŽƒ
 
 
All aboard the Skelly Cat Train of Fun....its time to go Trick or TreatingπŸŽƒ
 

  Everyone is out this Halloween and ready for a haunting good timeπŸŽƒ
 
 
All our precious kitties that have crossed over are smiling down upon us tonight😻
 
 
 I used Cats Galore to create my magical sky and coloured it with Hickory Smoke, Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide inks then splattered with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide spray and  Tarnished Pewter Distress Stain spray.
 
 
Last October we lost our precious kitty Mango so he’s watching over the evening spooktivities here as the Mango Moon😻  Mango was the inspiration for my Kitty Pumpkin Hat design😻
 
 
Teeny tiny fussy cut Bram, Betsi and Grim Batleigh Bats are having a FaBOOlous time flying around giving everyone a good fright!
 
 
 Carved Skelly Cat is gleefully pulling the train of creepy cute fussy cut Balleigh Monsters and grinning Jack o’ Lanterns all coloured up with Copics and white Prismacolor pencil highlights.
 
 
The Grass border cut file by Paige Evans and the Train is a modified cut file by Emily Dyer are from Silhouette Design Store and I applied silver Spectrum Noir Midas pigment ink to the edges.  I welded the Train to the silhouette of my Carved Skelly Cat for one continuous cut.  I matted my Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide coloured "Happy Haunting" senti and the main scene panel onto black glitter card and then mounted everything onto a white folded card base I made from heavy weight cardstock.  I adhered the Train and all the Balleigh Monsters and pumpkins to the card with black foam tape and the 4 pumpkins to the grass with more foam tape for 3 levels of 3D fun!
 
What a spooktacular time all the monsters and beasties are havingπŸŽƒ
 
 
 To finish off 31 Days of Halloween here's a fun video for a look back at all 31 makes so grab your candy and enjoy the showπŸŽƒ
 
 
Don't forget to shop the Halloween Sale and grab the Cat Lovers coupon above before the Witching Hour is over at LeighSBDesigns Etsy BOOtique!
 

 
 Before I sign off 31 Days of Halloween 2020 here's a peek at one of my indoor Halloween dioramas this year!  This is one of my 7" resin Tonner Sad Sally dolls trick or treating in a haunted graveyardπŸŽƒ


Have a spooktacular and safe HalloweenπŸŽƒ
Happy Haunting!

πŸ’€ Egyptian Cats Luminary πŸ’€
Pyramid Box by Leigh
 
My Day 29 of 31 Days of Halloween Hop plus Day 4 of the Cat Lovers Hop inspiration for you today is a mystical Egyptian luminary featuring my Egyptian Cats, Cleo and HorusπŸŽƒ
 
 
Prepare to worship at the mighty Pyramid of the Cat gods!
 
 
Oh mystical kitty cats we honour you and bring you toys and treats!
 
 
The Pyramid of Cats glows with magical power at night!
 

Watch my little video to see the mystical magic in action!
 
 
 I printed out 2 each of my Cleo and Horus Egyptian Cats with 1 of each as a mirror image.   I coloured them with Copics and fussy cut them out.  I then fussy cut mats from black cardstock for each cat too.
 
 
 I made a pyramid window box cut from a sheet of heavy weight watercolour cardstock I coloured with Black Soot and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide sprays, Black Soot Stain and Tarnished Pewter Distress Stain sprays to get the look of metal.  I lined each window with spiderweb segments cut from a Silhouette Design Store Cobweb Lace cut file by Jennifer Wambach then covered each window with orange cellophane from my Quality Street sweets stash of coloured cellophanes....Quality Street is an English candy brandπŸ˜‰. I then cut a hole the size of a flameless tea light into the base flap of the box, adhered the matted cats to each box panel and assembled the box.
 
 
 Neo gave it his seal of approval😻
 
 
😻 Neo is my gorgeous ruddy Abyssinian boy 😻
