Two Old Bats July Halloween Anything Halloween

So what’s more scary — Rats or being asked as a Guest Designer for the Two Old Bats July Anything Halloween Challenge???? I am so honored to have had my May card chosen as a Top Winner and invited to be a Guest Designer. Thank you so much! I have so much fun participating in the monthly Halloween challenges.

This month’s inspiration board inspired me to use the Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz STAMPtember 2019 stamp set. Mr. Rat was stamped in VersaFine Clair Nocturine Black ink and clear heat embossed, then colored while sponging a little GKD Fresh Asparagus and Hero Arts Tangerine inks around this little guy. My swirl of stars was created with the Tim Holtz Hocus Pocus layering stencil and some black soot distress ink. Some glossy accents was added to Mr. Rat’s eyes to help them pop. A couple of strips of black cardstock, sentiment and orange gems finishes my card.

Thanks for stopping in for a peek and the honor of being a Guest Designer.

Now that my card is completed, I think Rats are more scary!!

  2. You have been quite the goulash crafter. The design on this is so balanced and your rat makes me smile. But not link to the challeng?

  3. Great job with your Guest Designing! Your card is top notch and funny. A rat getting his nose stuck it the door is way too funny.

  4. Awesome job as Guest Designer as this card is sure to inspire others! Your sponging, stenciling and coloring look great, and I love your card design/layout as well.

    1. Thanks, Lisa, you are so good for my soul with your positive comments. It was a fun card to make.

  5. Gayle, this is just as cute as can be and beautifully executed! Love the whimsy of the rat character with his glossy eyes. Love the softness of the stenciled stars on the background panel. The orange gems are a fun touch. It’s all so nicely done and I’m so happy to have you as our guest designer this month!
