Thursday October 4, 2018

I wanted to make a Halloween type card even though I don't do Halloween and never liked it.. We use to take the kids to a local swimming pool and pretty much have the whole pool to ourselves. I would buy some candies for them but they really loved the pool idea better. Any how I went along with what my mind was showing in my head and created this card.  I have a bat stamp and a die but the more I was thinking I remembered an awesome tree I had and it seems that bats come out at dusk so that's what I went with. Just using stamps. The tree by Peddlers pack, the bats by Petaluma.. I created the sky using Ranger Oxide inks. I then created the ground using my template and Oxide inks. I then used water and flicked some dots. I took Perfect pearls and watered it down and added sprinkles of this so that I had a star looking sky. I stamped the Tree and Bats with Stampin up black. I added some grass to the bottom with more black.. The sentiment is from a Halloween designer pack and I just cut out the BOO.
