October 18~ 31 Days of Halloween Wicked Blogger Challenge Day 18


Hi! 

Welcome to Day 18 of 31 Days of Halloween! The Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween Challenge is to create a daily project using a stamp, rubber or digi, and run from there. Remember to pop over HERE to Terra's blog to see the daily Scavenger Hunt prizes donated by our awesome sponsors and find the daily clue. You can also see all the rules there, too. For your reference I have the Wicked Blogger Hop list on the ride sidebar:)

Today is my Bat Tribute! I used a free piece of clip art I found at The Old Design Shop Blog for the picture on the piece. The Old Design Shop is another super fun place for clip art of the vintage variety!



I tinted the clip art with Distress Inks after I printed it out on cheap photo paper. The Night Terrors clip is from an Altered Pages collage that I was fortunate to win in the Scavenger Hunt also printed and tinted the same way. The bats in flight stamp is Unity. 

Have a spooky Saturday!

Thanks so much for looking and your comments make my day! If you have any questions, just ask:)

  8. Wonderful piece today! Love the vintage bat image, and your background is terrific--so much texture. I'm assuming that's tissue paper that gives it that textural feeling?

    1. Hi! Thanks for your kind words!
      I built up the background starting with some plain heavy paper. I added some dry wall tape and some plastic mesh, you can see the mesh in the top left. I glued it down with some thinned plain white glue. Then I covered the whole thing with plastic wrap, the kind you wrap food in. I added more thinned white glue. Let dry. Then added the painted and stamped tissue paper on top. So, I think that is why I have a lot of "hills and valleys".
