I am in a Halloween mood! I will be sharing a bunch of Halloween cards over the next two weeks. I have a little cutie for you today made with Serendipity Stamps for the Halloween Challenge on their blog. I used a small bat stamp and a sentiment. I made two cards and varied the colors slighthly. Here is the fist card.
To make the background, I applied ink (black) to an acrylic block and stamped with it directly onto white CS. The bats and sentiment were stamped with black ink. I colored in the bats with black chalk. I used a Spellbinders die to cut the decorative square and used fall colors. Here is a close up.
I tied a bright orange ribbon in a bow and glued it on. And, for the second card, I applied navy ink to the acrylic block and used orange for the decorative square. This time I spritzed the acrylic block with water before stamping. A totally different look from the first card-which was not spritzed with water. I tied the yellow ribbon in knot and glued in place.
My Halloween Bats are also entered in the:
