Jelly Bats

Click here for the October Card Chain Challenge sign up

Hello.  Welcome.  OK, who ate all the jelly liquorice bat sweeties??  Oh, wait, wait, I'm being told we didn't actually have any of those.  You saw them in the bag on my desk?  No, no I'm sure you are mistaken.  I distinctly remember not eating any candy from the bag on my desk!! It must have been someone else's desk.......... bwahahahahaha

Made a tag.  A serious coffee lover lurching along to the hop.......

I made my base using some tone on tone stamping as per the MFP tutorial.  My base colour is ripe persimmon and I stamped the flower from Unity Bravely Change using 4 shades of orange distress ink.  I cut the tag, then used Stamplorations Stitched Hills dies to split it up.  I added a line of green glitter between each section.   

I die cut and paper pieced Cheery Lynn Zombie.  I cut a coffee cup from a scrap of stamped card.  The sentiment is a Unity stamp that I have altered.  I cut it out with a sizzix circle die and smeared it with Wilted Violet distress.  A few Sizzix diecut bats and some black and white ribbon and he's ready to lurch into a new day...........

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
