Simply Crafts Challenge Blog One Year Anniversary

It's time to say "Congrats" to Simply Crafts Monthly Challenge Blog One Year Anniversary!!!! 
And because it's their one year anniversary they're giving away TWO prizes to two lucky winners who link up their project. 

Below are the details; or click HERE to go straight to their challenge for this month.

This month we are using the vampire bat cut from the Create a Critter 2 cartridge. If you have this cartridge we'd love it if you'd use that cut on your project. We are also opening up this challenge a little bit more since it's our anniversary. You can submit ANY Halloween project as long as it's made between today and October 16th. No past projects please. :)
There are still a few days to enter your project, so I hope you'll be able to join in on the fun. 

For my project, I'm using the vampire bat from Teresa Collins Chic n Scary cartridge. (I don't have the Create A Critter 2 cartridge, yet)

I chose to make a Halloween scene using a few cuts from the Chic n Scary. 

This little Batty's face is stamped with Peachy Keen Pumpkin Faces...I did a little stamp rendering.  The little mouth, is actually the nose of the pumpkin face.  I masked off the mouth cause it just didn't fit right, but the nose actually looks like a mouth once I stamped it on the bat.  I think he looks a little "hungry" lol  then I pop dotted him so he's "flying". You can't see it real well, but I also used Glossy Accents on his eyes.

This is the Gnarly Tree cut.  I accented it by using white jelly roll pen. I added the glittery moon to make the tree and bat stand out a bit more.  Ohhh, lookin' scary, ha!

The last cut I added to my Halloween scene is the picket fence and crow.  I had to cut this one twice, once in brown kraft color and in black.  Then I just cut the crow off in black and glued him on.  I used brown felt pen and made the lines for the boards of the picket fence. No white wash here.

On the inside I simply stamped Happy Halloween. 

Hope you enjoyed my card that I'm entering into the Simply Crafts challenge.  I hope you'll enter your project too. 

Chao for now. --C
