Wing of Bat

Hello, welcome and boo to you.  Having a inspired month here at the Crafty Nomad.   Have you checked out my candy?  More excitement tomorrow so don't forget to check back regularly this month.  It's just so much fun to share with you.  I love the challenges at Joan's Garden.  Joan always comes up with such great recipes.  This week it's purple and green, torn edges and layers.   I can work with that.....

I started with a purple card, distressed the edges and added some dark purple ink to make it stand out.  I cut Cheery Lynn Spider Web Mesh Border from green paper and cut it lengthways.  I tore three different patterned papers and layered them and the web border.  I cut Cheery Lynn Pocket watch in green, added a purple lizard skin effect paper behind and a frog button.  It's a frogket watch! 

I added some bats and a spider button. 

The bottle is a stamp from PaperArtsy LPC01 set, coloured with purple wink of stella brush and then covered with glossy accents.  It shimmers, it shines.  The pumpkin is small pumpkin embossing folder from Sizzix on sanded core'dination card and the Halloween is another button, from Dress It Up I think.
