Going Batty on Day 2 of QKD's 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop

Welcome to Queen Kat Design's Thirteen Days of Halloween Blog Hop!  If you've come here from the QKD Main Blog, you are on the right track.  From October 1st through the 13th,  you'll see cards and projects using stamped images from the Queen's royal court of talented artists.  Today the theme of the Hop is BATS!
You can't miss the bat on my card, can you?!  This
weirdly cute Queen Kat Designs stamped image is a favorite of mine.  It's called "Vampire Bat Eye" by artist Nora Blansett.
I colored my bats with Copics, using Liquid Glass to put a little twinkle in their eyes.  Then I popped them onto an orange cardstock base, adding some black flourish rubons, the sentiment and a few jewels in the corner and on the bottom.  Simple design, as EYE wanted to let the images do the talking!

To show you how much fun this image has been to color and create with, I made a second card showcasing Vampire Bat Eye by Nora.  Here I used a piece of Neenah patterned paper with the quote, "One's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions."
Keeping it simple again, I framed my Copic-colored image, added a couple lines of small jewels, and placed a diecut border along the side.  I embellished my border with a handmade flower.

This is such a fun image, I hope you'll take another look at it in the SHOPPE.  As a special enticement, during the Blog Hop, customers can snag a special discount.  Just click on the picture in my sidebar for your QKD Halloween treat!!

Next on the Blog Hop is BETH, but be sure to leave a little love before you hop along!!
