Can you believe it’s June already? This card is for the Two Old Bats Halloween Blog Challenge. I gave the inspiration board a bit of a try this time around. You do not have to follow the inspiration board, it’s just a little push to get your creative thoughts flowing. For this challenge, you just create a project with a Halloween theme, that’s it! Easy Peasy!
I used The Rabit Hole Designs – Mesh Optical Illusion for the background. I think it adds so much texture and interest. Look closely at this stencil, the openings are not symmetrical, they are wonky and I love it! It kind of reminds me of a pair of mesh panty hoses, LOL!!! The images are a printed transparency that is super old (like 18 yrs old). I colored the jack-o-lantern with alcohol markers on the wrong side of the transparency. Be patient, the markers take long to dry. Die cut is by CC. Designs and I got it from Artful Angel Store, it’s called: CC Designs Circle Die.

It’s the middle of the month, which means a little reminder about the “Two Old Bats Halloween” Challenge! Halloween it’s getting closer! YAY! So get your cards ready. The challenge is an open challenge with a Halloween theme. The gals always have a cool inspiration board, let me share that with you.
As you can see I got a bit of inspiration with the pumpkins but instead of little kids dressed as ghosts I got a cute mummy! The image was a RAK I received from my friend Kellie. THANK YOU GURL!
supplies: pumpkins punch by EK Success, image RAK, glittery black paper behind the pumpkins from my stash. I am including a closeup so you can see the inside of the pumpkins and how they shimmer.
These fantastic gals (Darlene and Diane) decided since there are all year ’round Christmas challenges to have their own year ’round Halloween one! I am joining them and I couldn’t get any more excited! The new challenge blog is called TWO OLD BATS HALLOWEEN Challenge. I may have a few challenges done ahead of time! LOL!!
It is a monthly challenge and the theme is ANYTHING HALLOWEEN! But of course we do have a beautiful inspiration board that you MAY use if needing a bit of a push in the inspiration/idea department.
Here is my card, I didn’t use the inspiration this time, because I wanted to use these pumpkins!
I am guilty, I joined the slim card train! Super simple card, I loved that pattern paper, even though it’s not Halloween themed the colors cannot be any more perfect for a Halloween card. I paired it with this EK Success punch. This punch is pretty unique, you can punch the plain pumpkin (not pictured), the pumpkin with the lines and the jack-o-lantern… all with just ONE punch. I finished all of the die cuts (and even the stars of the paper) with a little white highlights with a white pen.
