Bat bat Batty

Hope you're all ready for the Trick or Treaters tomorrow night!  We never quite know how to judge the sweetie stash ... some years it's a constant stream of youngsters to our door and other years there's hardly any about!  With a bit of luck we'll not run out of treats and have to turn the lights out to pretend we're not home ;)

I don't make many spooky cards (we're not really into cards at Halloween here!), but this one is for Mum using some Eat Cake Graphics stamps:
Bert Batula
A little bite (text)
Skully flowers

I inked up my background, added some cloud effects and then some orange and black splatters for good measure.  I used the inlaid die effect for my moon - though I'd had a clever idea of cutting through the white card at the same time as the base and it left a bit of an imprint.  A few silver stars and that's it really!
Of course I had to take my picture before my gloss on their eyes was dry and managed to drop it! grrr.  Though I didn't re-do it as I kinda like the effect.  Lucky eh?

  1. Your funny card certainly put a smile on my face. I love your take on our challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More. Thanks for sharing. Love the clouds big moon and those scary bats especially the EYES! The skeletons are a perfect finishing touch. Still laughing here Lynne.

  2. Love those goofy-eyed bats and your skull flowers! Fun card! I actually made almost 30 Halloween cards this year. Sent them to all the grandkids, kids, siblings, aunts & uncle and a couple of cousins. The cousins are probably a little surprised to get a Halloween card from me, but I like to make and send them, so they're included on my list. :)
