I’m “batty” & 40% off!

Silence…my kids are back to school today, time for a second cup of coffee and some peace and quiet, ahhhhh. Rather than have another back to school project for you today I thought I’d fast forward a bit and show you a Halloween card I made with my new digital stamp set Halloween Doodles, that set is 40% off along with EVERYTHING at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff today {August 31st} only!

 

I had a nice time making this card. I like to listen to audio books while I craft and I was listing to a very creepy one (Cujo by Stephen King) while I was making this. First I colored the bat with 4 shades of purple promarkers then I masked the bat and moon and colored the sky with inkpads.

TIP: When you wan to mask a digistamp simply stick a post-it note over the image (you will be able to see through it enough) and trace the outline, then cut out the shape and stick it over the image you want to mask, easy!

I punched a 1.5″ circle (of post-it note) to mask the moon and dabbed away with several shades of blue ink pad over the masked bat and moon. then I used a foam dauber to swirl in some clouds. Finally I finished it off with white colored pencil to give the clouds more shape and the moon more definition.

 So, if you liked that be sure to grab the Halloween Doodles set or anything else that strikes your fancy at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff for 40% off today! Here are some products you might enjoy:
