Halloween on the mind

ok fess up!  who else has already started on Halloween cards?  I can't be the only one!  A couple days ago I made one useing a "by the seat of my pants" masking idea. 

so I have some tape that doesn't really stick too well.  I put that on the back of these bat things I have.  then I inked the entire card just with my straight ink pad, just tapping on it.  Then I removed the bats and the tap and continued making my card on that base.  I think it worked well!  what do you think?

my diecut letters are so big I had to get creative with how I put Halloween on the card!  so I decided Happy shouldn't be on there.  instead I put some of the black bats back on, added some gogglie eyes and a couple pumpkins!  I then backed black behind that and glued it to my card.  I'm pretty happy with the over all look of it!  what do you think?  any advice? things I think I should do again?  



  1. Very creative! cool technique too. Love those little eyes :)
