Bats, bats, and more bats!

Bats! I just can't seem to get enough of them! Okay - I think I'd pass out though if I came close to a real one, but paper ones....cute cute!

I started out with a piece of shimmery white paper, stamped the image (The Angel Company), colored it, masked it and then sponged and sponged and sponged! I used blues and purples and black! I layered the sponged piece on a piece of Eggplant paper, then onto a black card. I stamped some more bats, colored and cut them out, and then layered them so they look like they are flying off the paper! I also realize that those are fangs and NOT feet, but I accidentally cut them off and I was too tired stamp, color and cut the fangs sort of look like feet!

For some extra shine, I used Sunflower Shimmerz on the moon, and I also used my white gel pen to give the spots just a bit more dimension. Now that I think about it, the bats would probably be very cute with some Crystal Effects as well.....I may add that later! I wanted to keep the card simple, so I used just one piece of ribbon (A Muse - from Heather! thanks Heather!) Then I used PTI's Happy Halloween stamp, punched it with SU! oval, then punched it again with the Word Window Punch, added some brads and called it Henry! I mean good! : )

I am not a fan of Halloween images but I will admit that your creation is just plain GREAT! All of your coloring ideas turned out so cool.
