Eerily Batty

I LOVE Halloween!  Tomorrow I start my Halloween card countdown for the Michael Strong Yahoo Group.  Today will be a preview of the horrors to come!

First I stamped on the tree from the Spooky Silhouettes stamp set.

 Then I used the leftover paper from a Tim Holtz movers and shapers bat and used some embossing paste and added in a few bats.
 When the embossing paste was dry I sprayed on some home made mahogany Bister spray right in the middle of the tree.  It was pretty watered down so it came out kinda pink.  Then I sprayed on some Dylusions Crushed Grape aound the edges.
 The bats didn't stand out enough so I painted them with black distress paint.
When it was dry I added some crackle accents which made the pink come out even more. 
 I added a ribbon dyed using the Seam Binding Ribbon Dying technique from the Oct/Nov 2014 issue of Technique Junkies and added a pink and purple paper border. 


Stamps:  Michael Strong (Spooky Silhouettes)
