Watch your email for this week's image - Halloween Bat! 

I have made a couple of tags with this bat... I printed them, coloured them with Copics and cut them out. The photo makes them look a little washed out...

If you are a premium member you also receive Halloween Lovers Premium which I have used in this journal page:

This also uses a paper from Halloween Papers Bats and Bones

So I started my Scrapbook page with a strip of webby ribbon - I used to have lots of this, in all sorts of colours - I am now down to my last few inches of red!! I added a square of red textured paper, the corners of which I 'internal corner rounded'. This used to be my favourite corner rounder - but the punch has stayed on the shelf a while!!

I also added the image combined with the paper from Bats and Bones. I used Craft Serif 2. Once printed I used Copics for colour. I corner rounded this part to match too...

I then added the tags:

The technique on this tag is Paint Dabber Resist with a blended background.


  1. Ink a stamp using a metallic acrylic dabber.
  2. Stamp tag and dry with heat tool.
  3. Blend a background over the stamped acrylic pattern.
  4. I corner punched the corners and added a bat.

The technique on this second tag is Wrinkle Distress.


  1. Crumple the tag to make a wrinkled surface.
  2. Open up the tag and smooth it out!
  3. Choose a distress Ink Pad, ideally a dark colour and wipe it directly across the raised wrinkles of the tag.
  4. Spray with water to let the ink run.
  5. Iron the tag with a craft iron until dry.
  6. I corner punched the corners and added bats.
I then added these to the page:

I will link this to Outlawz Challenges Crash Your Stash - corner punches.

Happy Hopping!
