DD #73 - Spooktacular!

Hi!  For Dynamic Duos Challenge #73, I've used our colors for another Halloween card.  These dramatic colors could be used for so many occasions or styles of card making.  See what I mean.

I combined the challenge colors with black and created a dark, spooky (well, not too spooky) card.  As I said last week, it's fun to create cards for an occasion that I usually don't get into much.

I created the sky by sponging cajun craze and island indigo inks onto some whisper white cardstock.  The tree die cut was placed over that, then the rolling hill.  I drew 3 little bats onto the sky - not sure how bat-like they look!
The sentiment and the bat beside it were stamped last.  If you look closely (click on the 1st photo) you'll see that I added 2 dabs of black enamel accents for his eyes.  Spooky, right?

Thanks so much for taking a look, now click on over to Dynamic Duos and see what my super-talented team mates have created.
