I asked Chris for suggestions for my post title. He liked Howl at the Moon, but cats don’t howl. Or do they? We’ve never had a cat, so I don’t know. My neighbor’s cat sounds like it is howling at 3 am…right under my bedroom window. I wonder sometimes if my dog is deaf, but he hears me when I open the backdoor to feed him or call him to go for a walk. He’s not doing his job! Anyway, Meow at the Moon is what evolved. It doesn’t really sound that scary, but don’t underestimate the Tiny Black Kat!
My brother gave this book to Chris for Christmas many years ago. I read it first and “The Price” was exceptionally good! I probably shouldn’t have read that story before bed though. Hmmm, maybe that howling at 3 am should worry me a little…
I’m up on the Just For Fun Rubber Stamps blog today with a spooky Halloween scene!
I didn’t do anything fancy here, just some stamping and ink blending. I created this scene using three stamps – the Tiny Black Kat, Haunted Moon Tree, and Bats and a little help from my new Tim Holtz Stamp Platform! Sometimes the silhouette stamps need to be stamped twice to get a good solid print. I used Distress Oxide in black soot to stamp the silhouette images and regular Distress Inks for the background and the moon. The Tim Holtz mini ink blender was the perfect fit for the moon! The BOO letters were stamped with some tiny alphabet stamps from my stash.
