Batty for You – Inky Paws 157 Reminder!


Hello and welcome back!

If you have not joined yet, there are still a few more days to take part in the Inky Paws Halloween Challenge! Link up your project by the end of Friday for a chance to win a $20 voucher to the Newton’s Nook Online Store!

Ever since the Batty Newton Stamp Set came out last year, I have loved it! As a child, I always flip-flopped on being either a bat or a cat for Halloween, and this set is a perfect combination of both!

To start my card, I stamped and colored the Batty Newton image using my Copic markers. For the wings, I used: V17, V15, V04, V01, and V00. To color the cat, I used: 100, W8, W6, W5, and W3.

After coloring, I die cut the image using the coordinating die.

I decided to try something a little different (for me!) to create my background. I started by cutting a piece of white card stock down to 4×4 inches. I ink blended over the card stock using the Distress Oxide colors Antique Linen, Milled Lavender, Seedless Preserves, and Dusty Concord.

I wanted it to look like my batty cat was flying in the sky with a bunch of his bat friends circling around him. To create this effect, I used the Gina K wreath builder and a few different bats from the Batty Newton and Newton’s Boo-tiful Night stamp sets. Since I used oxides on the background, I stamped the bats in Black Soot Oxide to make sure it showed up against my background. After doing a few layers of bats, I decided it needed a little sparkle, so I used the wreath builder to add some stars with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed the stars with Gina K Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.

To finish my card, I heat embossed the sentiment “feline batty” in the lower right corner of the panel. I popped Newton up using some foam tape and put him the center of all the bats. Lastly, I adhered my panel to a black glitter card base.

I hope you join us in the last days of the Newton’s Nook Halloween challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
