I'm Bats About You

Good morning!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend.  I found some time to get inky and decided to make another Halloween card.

I used the Witch Way Candy stamp set from My Favorite Things.  This adorable set was recently retired but I was lucky enough to grab the last one off the shelf at my local stamp store.  I decided to play along with the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #300.  I stamped the bat, colored him with copics, then fussy cut him.  I used distress inks to create the dark sky background and a moon.  I diecut the moon using the Die-namics Stitched Circle STAX and then I used the Die-namics Circle Spinner Channels so that I could create a spinner card.  I love how the bat spins around on the card!  The cute sentiment is from the same set and I heat embossed it with white on a banner that I diecut using the Die-namics Fishtail Flags Layers STAX.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  

Hugs, Anita

  1. I agree..awesome design! Spinners are so fun, and yours is SO cute. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players!

  2. This whole little sky/moon/bat scene is too cool!!! Love how this turned out!

  3. I must admit that though that little bat is as cute as a "bat"?... I really am impressed with your work with gradients and blending. I am very interested in your technique perhaps you could do a blog page on that? I struggle with the flow of color, hue, value changes and you clearly have mastered them all! Well Done, my mother would shout!!

  4. Anita, this just makes me SMILE!!!!!! I love every detail! The beautiful background you distressed is perfect! That spinning bat is just perfect! I would love to receive this card in the mail! Thank you for joining my Halloween challenge at The Paper Players this week! XX
