to see my Sweet Sketch Wednesday post!
Going Batty Over You!
With this card I tried to make it look like you were getting a glimpse at moon lit night sky with the eery gray colorings that you sometimes see when it is stormy outside. I got to use the new Mica Gloss inks (Silver and copper) that I bought from Judikins at CHA. I kind of splurged and bought all the colors they had! I am so glad that I did because I love this stuff!! It is shimmery and also does not muddy up when you mix colors together. With the mica it keeps it color intact. The photo was a pretty good representation of how it looks shining in the light.
The clouds come from the Whimsie Doodles Sunny Day set that was released on the 1st of August. That set is a must have because it has some adorable trees and field scenes too that could be used for so many card or SB projects But the clouds colored gray with my Copics were the perfect addition to complete the scene.
The DP is another old one I had stashed and it is from Scrap Rack, the doilie that I cut to use as a border is from BG and the black CS is from Recollections. The ribbon is from PTI... I love that black and white gingham!!
The Going Batty stamp set comes with the bat, moon, stars and the sentiment you see at the bottom on the tag I made. Isn't it just so stinking cute??
This was another fun project to make. I don't know about you, but I have a buying and hoarding problem for all things alterable! I can't pass up the dollar bins without finding something I think I will alter and my Michael's always cool unfinished wood items that are the best things to alter and pretty up!
So I decided to make a treat bag that is actually made out of wood and decorate it with the next stamp I am going to show you. This Whimsie Doodles digistamp is called Halloween Cat and Friends and is the perfect image for Halloween!!
I made this project using that stamp and a little play on words...
Halloween KIT-ty KAT Bag!
Did you get my play on words?? Kit Kat bar and Kit-ty Kat bag? HeHe!! The DP is from BG's Ambrosia pack and I modge podged it to the wooden bag after cutting out a template. The ribbon is from PTI.
I printed the digistamp out onto PTI CS and then colored it in with my Copic Markers and also sponged the ground and the sky with my SU inks. I framed the circle with more nesties and then printed out the sentiment to fit the project. The font I used was called Cooper Black.
