I know it is a while to Halloween, but a girl has to do what a girl has to do.

I was playing about yesterday with the Umbrella Weather Framelits and all I could see was a bat. Now, I suppose it could be the hot spell we are having but still I had to have a go.

I started by making the bat wings using the plain umbrella top from the framelit set, cutting two out of Basic Black card stock. I then cut a head with an inch circle punch. The teeth and ears were made using the rain drops from the thinlets in Whisper White and Basic Black card offcuts. They were a bit fiddly, but I think they are worth adding.

Now to the background. I started with a circle of Whisper White card which I sponged with  Crushed Curry ink over about two thirds. I stuck the circle on to another piece of Whisper White card and then ran it through the Woodland Embossing Folder. When this has been done you can hardly tell that it is a separate piece of card.

Using my Stampin Up! brayer, I used three colours of ink Old Olive, Crushed Curry and Crumb Cake to colour the trees, making sure to go over where the moon is. This needs to be done carefully to make sure you don’t ink between the trees.

I popped deminsionals on the back of Batty, and placed him on the card making sure he was in front of the moon. The mat is Island Indigo and the card base is Basic Black.

This are the main tools I have used to make the card.
