Going Batty

I must be going batty! Well, this Halloween project certainly is.

It’s my version of a project on Page 45 of the August-December Mini Catalogue.

Going Batty. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

The project uses Purple Posy, Highland Heather and Basic Black.

Firstly, the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder creates a pretty background. Using a Sponge Dauber, I have darkened areas using Highland Heather Ink.

An image from the Textured Essentials Stamp Set is stamped onto a piece of Purple Posy in Highland Heather. This is then cut into strips, the ends shaped and then attached to the tag piece.

Lots of punches are in use here, the Fancy Tag Topper Punch, Lovely Labels Pick a Punch and the Detailed Trio Punch. The bat is made using the Umbrella Builder Punch, with the large umbrella for the wings and a section of the smaller closed shape for the body.

A few extra umbrella pieces are added to the background piece to give my bat some friends.

Metallic Mesh is threaded through the hole in the tag. This then has a bow to secure it using the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. To change the colour to co-ordinate with the rest of the project, I used Stampin’ Blends..

Finally, the tag was stuck to the project using Dimensionals and two Pearl eyes.

I hope you like this project and think it was worth going batty for!
