Halloween Diamonds

It seems that I'm sticking to the "Halloween Cats" theme this week since I'm currently designing my card-making class of the same name that will run in October.

When I checked what this week's challenge at the Tuesday Taggers will be, I found out its theme is "Diamonds are Forever". Now - how well do diamond shapes work with Halloween? They seem to be made for each other.

This is my contribution to the challenge:

Stamps I used are by Cherry Pie Art Stamps and Rusty Pickle.

I absolutely love the cat with a hat stamp by Rusty Pickle. Years ago they also had scrapbook paper with the same cat - you can see it here. I bought tons of it that time and saved it over the years. I'm still not very generous with it! Do you happen to have art supplies that you only use VERY sparingly, like favorite papers?

Gorgeous!

I'm afraid I do have papers like that. I am trying very hard not to do it anymore, but there are a few sheets of paper I have where I have bought one to use, and one to keep. Which is absolute madness! I have a particular sheet of flocked little grey polka dots on a pink background which I LOVE - perhaps I should challenge myself to just USE IT!

Just thought - could you scan your pussy cat paper before you use the last of it?

Beautiful work, love the warm tones, nice touch with the twinkling eyes on the cat.
