Batty Halloween

Today's blog post is brought to you by the letter "L" 

Does anyone remember the typewriter guy from Sesame Street? :) Just some fun for this Friday morning.  Anyway, today "L" is for Lawn Fawn in the Stamping A to Z series over at Two Peas in a Bucket.  So the Design Team created some Lawn Fawn projects.  I wanted to use my new doodlebug Halloween twine so I paired it up with some Heebie Jeebies Bats, Sally's ABCs and lots of yummy distress ink!

For this card I started out with a white base.  I clear embossed the sentiment on the white then added Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks to the background.  I sprinkled water & Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist on the background to achieve the speckled effect.  It's hard to photograph but the perfect pearls mist gives a nice shimmer to some of the spots.  For the bats I clear embossed them as well then colored them with Pumice Stone & Black Soot distress inks.  Because the twine is wrapped around the background several times I used Foam Tape to adhere it to the Black card base (which is kind of hard to see in this photo) and then popped the bats up with foam adhesive as well.  I really loved the effect of the pearl mist splatter so I am defiantly going to use this technique again.  

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to check out yesterday's blog post for a chance to win some goodies! :) I hope you all have fabulous weekend!
