midnight feast amongst tiny trees (WMS)

Nearly missed this one (something's up with my reader) but I'm playing along with the Waltzingmouse blog party with the theme "Fall".

My mind went to Tiny Trees and great fall colors.  But then I thought that was too easy.  Then I saw the sketch and decided to go with silhouettes in a group of four.  Then it dawned on me.  Halloween silhouettes and Halloweeny colors.

Stamped some watercolor-y squares using the back of an inchie stamp and Distress and Adirondack inks misted with Perfect Pearls water.  You can see the cool sheen a bit on this close up.

Stamped the bat and cut the images using a circle die cut.  Cuz I felt like using circles.  And I don't have square dies.  That made the selection of PP pretty easy when I saw this dot pattern in a My Mind's Eye Halloween pack I have.  Decided to add some heat embossed teeny trees and bats in the background and put the sentiment (Happy Halloween) on the inside.

First Halloween card of the season for me.  Thanks for looking.

Supplies :
Paper: cardbase Buttinette, PP My Mind's Eye
Stamps: Waltzingmouse
Ink: Adirondack, Distress, Versafine, Versamark
Tools: dies MFT
Other: embossing powder

I LOVE how the colors just POP against that dotted background, Maria! The swooping bats are so cool among the Teeny Tree forest. The shiny embossing makes them authentically spooky, EEK! So glad that you got to play along after all!
