- Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - CCICOct - theme Bats
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.
