SMILE! - That's what this little bat just seems to be saying.
For today's Blogger Challenge we were to use Designer Paper on our cards/projects. I hadn't planned on participating this week not because I didn't have any designer paper but more because I've been sick (boo hoo) all week with a bad cold, I had a Stamp Club to prepare for which was last night and today is my daughter's birthday. So much going on and I just didn't think I could fit anything more in. Then "inspiration" hit and I just had to come up with a card. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays an I just couldn't resist creating this card for this weeks challenge.
My little bat is one I picked up several years ago. The label says, Carson-Dellosa Publ. CD-8534 on it. I colored him with Copic Markets and an Only Orange marker. Then I cut out the Bow Tie from a second image and added Orange Peel Stickles to the tie for some sparkle and raised it up with foam mounting tape.
My card base is Old Olive and then I layered a piece of the Ghostly Greetings DP (SU) that I distressed with Pumpkin Pie ink. I stamped the sentiment (Inkadinkado - Ghouls and Goblins) with Palette Noir Black Ink. Next I added a strip of DP with the Pumpkins onto Basic Black card stock that I cut with Fiskars Notch Paper Edgers (I need to use my scissor more often).
I cut out a piece of the Bat patterned paper using my Nestablities Dies and a piece of Basic Black. Then I mounted the Bat image with Foam Mounting Tape and added 3 mini orange brads (Queen and Company) to complete the card. I also highlighted the bats toes with a Yellow Spica Glitter Pen for a little more glitz.
I had FUN with this card and hope you enjoy it too. Be sure to check out the other projects by clicking on the Bloggers Challenge Icon on my side bar.
