Going Batty ....

... at least that's what my family often tells me!  So I've decided to literally go batty on today's card.  It's clean and simple:

Stamps: Stampendous - Doodle Bat; Stampin' Up! - Holiday Cheer, Seasonal Snapshot 2015, Six Sayings
Inks: Versamark; Versafine - Onyx Black; Distress - Black Soot; SU - Tangerine Tango, Lucky Limeade
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Watercolour Paper; SU Card - Wisteria Wonder; White Embossing Powder; Neon Embossing Powders

I'm submitting this card to several challenges:

When I saw Tenia's card, I remembered that I have the bat stamp, so thanks for the inspiration.  I stamped one image directly on the card using Distress ink and used my aqua brush to very gently move the ink.  I stamped the other two bats on watercolour paper embossing one in white and the other in neon colours.  I added water to both images and then added a touch of black ink.  Once dry I cut out both bats.  I stamped the fun sentiment in bold black and finished the front by adhering both embossed bats with dimensional dots - using thicker dots for the coloured bat.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of light purple card and added more bats and a greeting on the white panel.

I love this bat - it looks totally mad!  I think that's likely to be all for today as I really must get the ironing done.  I said I was going to do it on Monday, but Jonathan was home with pneumonia (again).  He's gone back to work today, so I don't have an excuse not to do it now!  See you soon.
