Hello! It's Jennifer on the blog today! Halloween is a little over a month away and I couldn't wait to share one of the newest Halloween embellishments: the Bat Chipboard Shape Embellishments! You receive three cute little bats to a package and they are perfect to embellish for your Halloween projects! I decided to include two of them on layout since they are great accents!
I started with a white card stock background because I wanted the colors of my collection as well as the black bats to stand out. I used my 12 inch Chicken Wire Mascil (a favorite) with yellow and black spray inks. Using Mascils is an easy and fun way to add depth to your pages! Don't be afraid to play around with your inks (or other fun mediums like gesso or paint)!
While allowing my card stock to dry, I embellished one of my bats using heat embossing a favorite background stamp! I did paint both bats prior with black acrylic paint! I stamped my chipboard with clear embossing ink by Ranger.
Next, I applied an ample amount of clear embossing powder to the surface of my chipboard.
After removing the excess powder, I applied heat until the powder was set. You will notice powder will turn from opaque to clear.
Here is my end result...I do love using clear embossing powder because of the way it looks. How fun would it be to use glitter embossing powder on one of these cuties?
I did add two small orange enamel dots because I thought he needed some big eyes! :)
My title is cut from black card stock and a cut file from the Silhouette shop!
Thank you for stopping by! Check out the rest of the chipboard shape embellishments! There are ghosts, a spider, and spider web as well...the chipboard shapes are so easy to alter to fit your project needs! Have a great day!
