Halloween Bats - BOO!

Deciding to make a clean and simple Halloween card led me to the weekly Atlantic Hearts Challenge #333, which started on Monday, September 9, and ends on Sunday evening, September 15.

Finding a stash of Halloween bits, I liked the spiders and web printed onto the newspaper print in this paper design. I sponged the edges with ink going lighter toward the center. Using a black card base, I adhered the sponged panel. Next, two circles were die cut - a larger one in black and a smaller one in white. I wanted it to look kind of mottled like the moon so added a light touch of ink. The circles were offset and stacked, then adhered to the card using foam tape. Finally, the three bats with wiggly eyes and Wink of Stella were added. The inside was lined with white cardstock, sponged along the edges, and stamped: BOO!
Viewing these photos after posting them, it looks to me as if the bats are flying into their cave from a night of eating insects and raiding hummingbird feeders. (They raid my hummingbird feeders at night.)
