Batty Halloween and a Thank You

2011 September 19

Hi Everyone,

I wish I could say that I had a busy weekend creating … but nope, it was a weekend spend getting up at the crack of dawn to do our garage sale.  And the crafting mojo has not quite returned, I suspect it’s because I’ve still got too much other stuff in my head.  Thankfully, I do have a couple of projects that I finished a couple of weeks ago and have yet to share here.

This card was on the Sweet Pea Stamps DT blog  earlier this months, and features this hauntingly big eyed beauty from Sweet Pea StampsPlate #155©Terra Bidlespacher’s Halloween:

Halloween is one of my favorite crafting holidays but the only problem with this fun crafting holiday is that I have loads of papers from previous years left over.  But it’s not the paper that makes the card, it’s the big eyed cutie.  

I used Copics to color the image.  The black side panel was embossed and for some shimmer, I used a Versamark pad and lightly rubbed it over the raised areas, then adding some Perfect Pearls with a brush. 

You can’t see it but I added some Viva Décor Gloss Gel to the bell on her hat and used it to add eyes to the punched bats.  

After die cutting the image, I glued the pom-pom ribbon to the back of the image panel and adhered it to the card using dimensional foam.

I added a couple of punched bats and this card really came together quickly for me, which is so not the norm for me. 

Couple of challenges I’m submitting this card to:

Here’s one more look at the finished card:

Before I sign off, I just want to say “THANK YOU” to everyone who lifted me up with their comments…. thank you so much.  It brought rays of sunshine into a pretty dreary week!

Until next time….

    WOW! Your coloring is just amazing!  Those cats, the outfit, the background, the moon.  WOW!  I'm dumbstruck and too lazy to drag out my thesaurus and see if I can find appropriate adjectives to describe how fantabulous this is.  WOW!
