MC Oct/15 - Bats in Tree - Boo - Immortal Dead

Suzanne Cannon from Quietfire Design came out with this bats in a tree Silhouette file that I thought was really great...

So cut it out from black cardstock. Layered it on to a piece of "Soft Finish" white cardstock, colored with Pan Pastels in purple, blue and fuchsia. PS - soft finish cardstock is a fabulous cardstock that holds the Pan Pastels so beautifully. No fixative needed...

eCut the "Boo" from white cardstock and colored with Prisma Premier markers in Halloween colors... added the dot doodling with a micron & Zig Writer pen.

Stamped the ghost (Inkadinkadoo "Happy Haunting" set) using Versamrk and embossed with white embossing powder.

Stamped the sentiment "four giggling ghosts" (Quietfire Design "Halloween Wicked Collection" 46 pce set) on black cardstock using the Versamark and embossing with Pearl Lustre Carnelean embossing powder. Trimmed close, added a picot edge, swiped some white Pan Pastels and then wiped with a paper towel, adhered to card.

Final touch added some small clear rhinestones for bat eyes.

On the inside: Stamped the quote, gravestones and bats flying (Happy Haunting set), Cat (Inkadinkado "Scary Night") using the black and clear embossing. 

Colored with the Pan Pastels.
