Day 27 of 31 Days: Flying Bats

Hello! Today I bring you the 4th in my series of "simple" cards. Kraft cardstock, a swoosh of color, and a hand-drawn border.

I love these bats. They are from the same set that the witch image in this simple card series is from. The set is from Inkadinkado, and it is for sure, one of my most favorite Halloween sets that I own.

I swooshed on some purple ink, where I wanted the bats to be, then I stamped the bats on top. I added a few white highlights with a pen, and drew in my little border.

I am happy to have a set of 4. And tomorrow...I will have another set of 4 to show you! I have my 4th tile complete! Remember those fabulous Dilly Beans images that I have been working with? Yay! I am really excited to share that with you. So do come back tomorrow! For now, please visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
