Hello and hope you are having a good week or at least a better week than I am 🙂 My week and actually my life atm is very stressful, so much so that I am not getting any time to make anything or even to think about making anything. However, I did make this little piece of Halloween home decor a couple of weeks ago when I was making this card and then sat something on top of it and forgot I had done it at all! So just in time for Halloween, I give you – Spooky Shadow Cats!
This was a very simple idea so there is not much of a tutorial for it, but there are a few process photos.
A while back I did some gelli prints on some deli paper. It wasn’t Halloween but somehow I did Halloween colours so they have now become useful for this project lol. If you don’t have any pre-printed deli papers in your stash, don’t worry, you can use tissue paper, tracing paper, layout paper, or any other paper that you can see through a little.
Two cats were also glued on the purple frame side, so that each of the window panes had a black cat sitting in it. You might have worked it out by now or you might be wondering what I’m doing but just look what happens when you hold it up to the light. Because the deli paper is transparent, the light shines through and shows the two shadow cats on the other side!
Here’s a look at the reverse side…
Cute but spooky at the same time!
I hope you enjoyed my little shadow cat project. Thanks for making it all the way to the end. Let me know what you think in the comments!
