Wicked Bats - MTVD12, SC195, VVPP06

Lots going on with this card today!! I have had these Wicked Bats from Jessica Lynn Original for about 6 months and haven't had a chance to get them inky. That's a CRIME! They are so cool, I love how she drew them - they are just fabulous.

As soon as I saw this week's Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast (SC195) I knew these bats would be perfect. Since I'm on a Kraft kick from the Verve Project Parade and still had some out on my table, I reached for that (of course!!). I paired it with Pale Plum and Perfect Plum for the Meet the Verve Divas Challenge this week from Jen - just use purple.


Once those decisions were made this came together pretty quickly. The bats and the "Happy Halloween" sentiment are from Jessica Lynn, the "I'm bats about you" is from a clear set I got at the Archiver's Hot Spot. I sponged the edges of the Kraft with Palette New Canvas before I assembled the card. After I stamped the main bat in Palette Noir, I painted over him with Coal Shimmerz. I am addicted to Shimmerz!!

Supplies, etc.: Stamps - JessicaLynnOriginal.com. Paper - Pale Plum, Kraft, Perfect Plum, GP 110# white. Ink - Palette Noir, Palette New Canvas, Pale Plum, Perfect Plum. Other - dimensionals, Copic marker, scissors, Coal Shimmerz, black satin ribbon, sponge, paint brush, craft knife, circle punches.
