That Sucks...

Hi all and good morning! I want to share a card with you that I made using the current sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch #194, and since I used Paper Smooches stamps, I'll add this one to the current Sparks - Anything Goes challenge:

Here is the inside:

Based my card from this sketch:

I have a bat theme going on all over this card. See the gray DP with the black bats? Those bats are flocked! Awesome! I keep petting this card! Hahahaha!! Found the perfect sentiment to go with that cute hanging bat image! LOL! I really wanted to stamp an arrow that had a 90 degree angle to it, but I couldn't find one, so I went with the straight arrow above the sentiment. The branch was masked (badly) from a tree image and didn't come out dark enough, so I went over it with a marker. Glossy Accents was added to the eyes.

This past weekend I stamped a bunch of images and colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers. I think I'm starting to get the hang of how alcohol markers work. (But I'm still a work in progress!) ;) You'll see more in future posts.

Well, that's all for now. Thanks for hanging out with me! Have a fabulous day!
