I'm not really a person who's into Halloween cards but when the challenge is set... off we go... and this month over at Get Funky... that's exactly what we've been challenged to do.
Must admit I did enjoy making this one & even hubby was having his say over where he thought the bats should be... now that says something about the challenge when he's joining in...
First up I layered some black card onto a white base card & then onto this I layered some very funky black & white paper which is from the Funky Seasons 2nd Edition Black & White Collection download. My letters are from the Now That's Funky lower alphas download & are a combination of Pumpkin Patch & Rockstar (added a little doodling myself). Next up I drew a set of batwings & cut out 2 of them from dark blue glitter card, the top one is attached direct to the card & the bottom one has been mounted with 3d foam so they appear to be one behind the other. Finally I decided to give my little bats some funky faces... so drew around a 5p piece & cut 2 of these out... inked them with an orange ink pad, edged with black & then doodled the faces... and attached with 3d foam.
Hope you're all going to be joining in the fun over at Get Funky.
Happy crafting
