Been a while... Batty Thoughts (IO Happy Haunting Challenge)

Can't say I am a talkative blogger for sure...been since last December?! I most post my new cards on my SplitCoastStampers Gallery... So... if you want to take a peek- go here:

Anywayyy.... Impression Obsession (IO) has me at it again... and it's a challenge again: Happy Haunting! Rule was only IO products. And it had to be new (no back-dating) and a few other rules. Go check out the challenge here: What I discovered is that I still don't have enough IO goodies... (time to go shopping?) .... in spite of this, I think I did pretty well. Check out my two creations...

Batty Thoughts
I used the IO Cover-a-Card "Clouds" (CC091 C-A-C)
again my favorite little die cut town: IO "Haunted Hill" (Die 029P)
and IO Top Edger "Greetings" (Die 234-M)
For this one I stamped the clouds in gray. And then sponged a moon yellow and some rust (masking the cloud first) and some of the surrounding sky with a navy blue. (The photo makes it all look too blue). Then I made a gray shadow of the town by gluing a black die cut of the town over a gray die cut. And sadly, I found I had no Halloween greetings by IO in my stash... so I decided Thinking of you and some bats could work.  I like it... :)

Gonna post my second card in a second post...
happy haunting to all!

  1. I like it too Makani. What a great moon and sky you created and I love all the flying bats you used. What a fun card.

  2. Spooky, I love the scene that you have created with the Haunted Hill! Your sky is wonderful and the TOY works great with it.

  3. Oh my! that background is awesome! Thanks for playing along in the IO Challenge with us!
