Peachy Keen's gone Batty!

Well actually, I think I've been batty for years. Just ask my friends!!! LOL


The challenge was to use a pumpkin, a zig zag and the colour purple.
Here's the challenge card WITH the zig zag. Duh!

I loved making this card for Peachy Keen, as It gives me the chance to make a Halloween card or two.
(As we don't go in for it much over here...yet, I don't get the chance).
But having my hot little mitts on these fab stamps means I'm going to be doing a good few more!
I've used four stamps on this card.
The pumpkin, bat and sentiment are all one set, PK-629 in the PK store.
The background is a massive stamp, PK - 624, almost A6 in size UK, (A2 US).
I coloured the pumpkin with Copics and decoupaged him.
Can't really tell, but there are 3 layers to him.

Here's some different angles to give you an idea...

I glittered the Pumpkin's mouth and eyes with gold Glamour Dust to represent candlelight, and used normal Glamour Dust on the bat's wings. (Isn't he CUTE)!

Why not pop over the Peachy Keen blog for all the details and see what the other fab DT members have created!
(There's always a prize on offer for one lucky winner too)!

Have fun! Viv xx

Viv!! Your card is fabulous, and now that I see the zig-zag, I love what it added!! The dimension youa added by popping up the pumpkin is stunning, and of course, I love my bling, so the glitter on the bat and pumpkin make me so happy! I also love that you found a way to incorporate the background stamps! I swear I'm going to make a VERY BUSY card one of these days and use all of my favorite PKS! LOL!! Have a blessed day, my creative friend!!
