Halloween cat with partial diecut see through moon, with videos

The Monday Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp is: at the movies featuring Spellbinders products.

I don't have any Spellbinders products I'm afraid, but I thought this little cat flying past the moon looks a lot like that clip from E.T. with the boy on the bike...

It's a stamp from Wild Rose Studio called Halloween cat.
I stamped it on watercolor paper from Schut with My Favorite Things hybrid black in and the used a circle die to partially die cut the moon. I used a craftknife to cut around the cat.
To Make the moon I used yellow kite paper.
On hindsight the panel I made to hide the edges of the kite paper could have been the cardbase, I didn't think far ahead enough ;-).
I used Talens Ecoline to watercolor the panel and the Splattered white ecoline and Distress spray stain in Brushed pewter for the stars.
Wink of stella on the hat and mantel.
Stuck the panel to the cardbase that also has a hole. I like the light to shine through the kite paper.
As my watercolor panels are always slightly narrower and longer I filled the gap with some patterened paper and cut off the extra bit at the end, to make sure it all fits and not be too small or anything silly like that ;-)
