Halloween Bat Tag

Please click here for Tip Thursday 9/24 Dies Multipurposing. Please visit during the mth of Sept for new Tip Thursdays.

Bought Cricut digi cartridge, Creepy Critters, a couple weeks ago. Used Tim Holtz Crackle Paste with Bat stencil. Used CTMH Shimmer black & purple pens on some of the textured Bats. Can you find the Shimmer black & purple bats? When I went to cut the bat it moved it over the 3" edge so I canceled, rotated it and got it to fit within the 3" so it would cut on the 3" piece of cardstock. Used CTMH Shimmer purple pen on bat. Used Tim Holtz Distress Ink on ribbon which was orange so it would match with purple colors. Yes, I wore gloves.

Photograped with a pumpkin diorama my hubby made. Hubby is the talented pumpkin carver of styrofoam pumpkins which you can see on my blog sidebar. I have chosen the pumpkin stencil for him to carve and it is not a Pirate theme. Does anyone want to make a guess as to what the theme of the pumpkin will be? Stay tuned and you will see after he finishes.
