Tando Creative Challenge No 3, Spooktastic October.

This month's Challenge over at Tando Creative is SPOOKTASTIC and I'm entering just in time.

I've used just 1 of the 3 parts of the printers tray from the Mini Printer Tray Round (152mm diameter with stand) pack.
I have split the pack so I can make 3 printer's trays just like I did with this Printer Tray pack.

Click on it to make it bigger, although I must say that the bat's background setting is hopeless, they are never good but this one is particularly pathetic. I couldn't easily find a white area big enough and I didn't exactly go the whole mile in trying to set the scene in ambiance, I think I went roughly 1 and 3/4 inches instead.

I used Distress Inks and Andirondack dye Inks and sponged the backgrounds and used stamp sets:-
Chocolate Baroque - Howling moon
Inkadinkado - All Hallow's Eve

I drew the bat wings and used small black sequins glued on with Anita's 3D gloss to form the wing ribs.

I won't have got it anatomically correct so this bat won't fly, just saying in case you were looking out your window for it.
Although I could always stand outside your window with it dangling on a string and shake it suitably in the style of a bat in flight and for added authenticity I could emit a sonic whistle or audible squeak, what do you think?
(I've got until tomorrow night to get to your house...)

Happy Halloween creating!

Ha ha I have images of you dangling your bat!! It's fab Gini, I love the colours and the stamps.
I'm so glad you joined us again.
How's the 'retirement?' xx

I LOVE your bat. Such a clever idea. I am laughing my butt off with images of you dangling the bat out a window making bat noises. We have 2 stories, so it would work wonderfully here.

This is fabulous Ginny, I love those colours, and your bat wings are brilliant.
Any takers yet with the old bat dangling offer lol x


Oh my goodness Gini - this is fabulous. Those bat wings are awesome and I love the addition of the sequins. I once had a scary moment with a real live Bat, so please don't dangle it in front of my window - I may freak out!! The ink colouring is a glorious mix and draws you right into the scene - spookaliciously gorgeous!!
Hope all is well with you and yours - Hugs, Sylvia xxxx
