As much as I love doing the 31 Days of Halloween, it seems to be making the month go by so much faster! And, since this is clearly my favorite month, all I want it to do is sloooooow doooown!
I got very inspired by the latest Macabre Monday challenge from Haunted Design House. The challenge is Simply Sinister. Your project is to be “sinister, but in a clean & simple way... no layer upon layer of schtuff. Keep one main focus to your project, simple & few embellishments... and make it a little creepy at the same time.” And, since Simply Betty is sponsoring their chllenge this week, I knew I needed to break out my beloved Rio stamp and use her!
How’s this for simple??? I used only one piece of paper, one marker, one colored pencil, 2 stamps, and one Dew Drop. Not bad right?
Here’s a close up of Rio. You can see that I colored her and her batty with a single water color marker (the shading looks waaaay better in person!), and her skin is one pencil. I used the same marker as a border on the card.
I had this teeny stamp of a flock of bats (do bats fly in flocks? Swarms? Anyone know???) from Inkandinkado which I stamped several times as a border. Again, one piece of scrap and a single, lonely Dew Drop in the upper left corner and I was finished!
I couldn’t believe how quickly this card came together! And, I think it came out sinister enough! That marker color is a weird greenish grey…kinda like the sky right before a really evil storm during the day…you know that icky, murky color right??? Perfect!
