Batty for Bats Eyes :-)

Hi everyone.   How did your week go?  Mine was quite busy, getting the girls organised and ready for back to school next week.

Andy came home last night for the long weekend and we have a few things planned to do and get done whilst he is here.  Honey to do list :-)

I am actually sharing with you another Halloween project :-)

I decided to have a play around with some of the digi's and embellishments from Polka Doodles new Halloween downloads.  Nikky, really got the creative juices flowing with this one.

Witchie Witchie 2013 Download Bundle

I used my Silhouette Cameo and the Silhouette Design Studio to get creative with the images.

Here is what I came up with.

All the elements are from the Witchie Witchie download bundle and I have used the Design Studio to put this card together.  The card base is also jar shaped, just welding two of the jars together.  Then I printed off the Trick or Treat paper and cut another jar slightly smaller and edged this with Memento Tuxedo black ink.

Next up, I cut another two jars, one complete in grey and another with a piece cut from the centre.  I added some google eyes ( I ran out, so they look a bit sparce - think they look as if they are floating in in fluid - which is fine) and then placed a small sheet of acetate and sandwiched together to make the jar. The bats eyes, and trick or treat labels are also in the download.

The bats are also on the download, as digital images for you to colour, but I used the trace feature in Design Studio and cut them out of black card stock.  I added some little eyes with a white gel pen and then stuck only their bodies onto the card.

For the inside, I used the negative cut to act as a stencil and some Memento Tuxedo Black to ink in the bats and then the stamp is from my stash.

And there you have it, a little bit more spookiness :-)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Oh, would you like a little sneak peek of something else that I will be showing you on Wednesday? No?!

Well, I am going to anyways LOL!  See if you can guess what it is :-)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
