Haunted Forest with Third Coast Rubber Stamps

Hi Everyone!
More spooky Halloween fun!  Today, I have a Haunted Forest Halloween card for you.  I have used Creepy Tree (DT-376-L)  from Third Coast Rubber Stamps. 

The stamping is done on a  5'" piece of Cream CS.  To make the moon, cut a piece of CS the same size as the cream CS and, using a Spellbinders die, cut a circle from this CS.  Don't throw any thing away.  Both pieces will be used.  Lay the CS with the circle cut into it over the Cream CS.  Fill the circle in with Distress Inks: Scattered Straw and Spiced Marmalade.  Remove this mask.  Take the die cut  circle ( circle mask) and put it over the moon.  Cover the Cream CS with Distress Inks: Stormy Sky and Soot Black.   Remove the circle mask.  Stamped the tree with Stazon Black ink and the bats (Stampin' Up) with black dye ink.

I used a brown marker to echo the stamped lines on the trees and to shade the eyes and mouth.  

Layer with Orange CS ( DCWV) and Mustard CS (The Paper Company).  I also decorated the inside and added a sentiment (Stampin' Up).

 Pretty Haunted, isn't it?!!   Hope you are having a great weekend and are able to make some time to stamp. Love ya.

  3. It looks as though it is glowing.
    I wish I lived beside you as I am in need of bats. Participating in a 14 month long postcard swap and for October the person asks for Hallowe'en, mainly bats. I will need to look at clip art images for those pesky bats.
