Batty For You - DS123

I had plans to stamp this morning, but I specifically said to myself "no Halloween or fall." I was just feeling like something less season-specific. Then, I saw today's Deconstructed Sketch and all that went right out the window. My mind immediately said "subway-style multiple sentiment square panel, ribbon tabs, and tiny bat accents." This one came together super quickly, thanks to Reverse Confetti's SPOOKY SENTIMENTS stamp set and Jen Shults's gem of a sketch. 

Here's a closer look at the sentiment panel:

I stamped off two of the "happy halloween" sentiments and colored the "spooky" letters in orange. For a little fun, I turned the two Os into scaredy-cat eyeballs. The background polka dots are stamped in light grey ink using a background stamp from WHOLE LOTTA DOTS. You can't see them here, but the tiny bat accents were done with a stamp from SPOOKY CUTIES.
And here's the lovely sketch:


Paper: My Mind's Eye Happy Haunting 6x6 pad, white textured card stock, gray card stock

Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Tim Holtz Pumice Stone Distress

Accessories: circle dies, orange and black markers, striped ribbon, buttons, notebook edge punch, foam adhesive
