Snowy Halloween

Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge — January Anything Halloween

It was a fun mood board to use as inspiration from the Two Old Bats Halloween Challenge for January and appropriate for winter. It does at times snow on Halloween in Pennsylvania. So for my card I wanted to create a snowy background. I started with a teal piece of patterened paper with stars on it, then using the Tim Holts Moon Mask stencil I attempted to stencil the moon in first white pigment ink and then finally versamark ink and clear heat embossed. I then inked Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink in chipped sapphire, a swipe of seedless preserves and finally black onyx over the patterned paper and while covering the moon with the solid moon mask. Next came SimonSaysStamp Snowflake banks stencil which includes snow banks and snow flakes. These were inked with Gina K Designs ivory pigment ink. Batty Newton from Newton’s Nook was stamped, die cut and popped up flying to the snowy moon to finish my card.

Thanks so much for stopping in for a peek. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and stay safe.

  1. The background panel you created is AWESOME! Your moon, the snow, and the blended colors all look great! The colors you chose for your bat go perfectly with your background.

    1. Thanks so much Lisa. I wasn’t sure if the ink blending over the patterned paper would work but was glad with the way it turned out.

    1. Thanks, Bonnie, the moon stayed more greenish than I wanted but I guess it’s ok for a snowy Halloween moon.

  2. This is totally awesome Gayle. Everything you’ve done is fantastic, background, snow and that little adorable bat. A winner for sure.

    1. Thanks, Johanna. This was fun to make. I was afraid that the teal patterened paper wouldn’t take the ink blending but was pretty happy with the result.

  3. Well, Gayle, you really nailed it on your snowy background – a wonderful contrast to the crisp lines of your little cat pretending to be a bat! Thanks for playing with us at Two Old Bats. Xoxo, Fran/DT
