31 Nights of Halloween - Night 21 & Giveaway

Welcome to Day 21 of the Whimsy Halloween Celebrations!

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend so far! It's Iris here today and I want to share a card with you where I used one of Whimsy's older Halloween Stamps. It's a Wee Stamp illustrated by Sylvia Zet and called Batty Boo. This is one of my favorite Halloween images of all times. I think it is stinkin' cute! Who can resist these little bats with their smooshy faces?

We are giving away lots of goodies during our Halloween celebration month here at Whimsy.  Denise is so generous and my giveaway for you today is this beautiful Batty Boo stamp (1 Stamp will be given away)! So if you would like to have these cute bats in rubbah then please leave a comment here in the comment section of this post. It's that simple! One comment per person please!

You have until 11:59pm on October 30th to enter. The winner will be drawn and announced here on the 31st - Halloween Night!

I colored the image with Copics and pencils using the no-lines technique. The background was created using a Tim Holtz Stencil (I think it's called 'Crackle') and Distress Ink  Tumbled Glass. The sentiment is from the 'Dracula I Compel You' clear set and stamped with Versafine black ink onto vellum paper.
I also clear embossed the sentiment to keep it from smearing.
I stamped  some of the bats included with the 'Dracula I Compel You' set onto the background panel. To give it even more dimension I as well die cut some bats from black cardstock with the matching Dracula I Compel You Die set.  The vellum paper strip was then layered on to the background panel. I fuzzy cut the image and added it with some foam tape on top of the vellum strip. To embellish and add some 'Bling' to my card I used  sequins and orange enamel dots from the Summer Breeze enamel dots set.
