Holly Bats

If you're looking for my Oddball Art blog hop post click here

This is my second card for the new release today at Oddball Art.  This is image 276 which is perfect for those friends that like something a little different.  If you look closely you can see cute bats in the holly berries.

I've not done much to this image apart from print it large and at a slight angle to create a CAS card.  I've added some more shading to the holly leaves and berries and coloured the bat giving them a pop of red with their hats.  I've also coloured the eyes in Merry Christmas in pale yellow :D

The image has been mounted onto some red and black card stock.

The sentiment is a die cut from Spellbinders.  Added to the end of this is a brass Christmas tree charm which I got from Live and Love Crafts.  When the charm comes it has tiny indentations where you can glue your own gems in to make it looks like baubles - so I picked red to go with the rest of the card :D

I know someone at work who has a goth friend and I'll bet she'd love this card

Oh yeah I nearly forgot the black heart gem which I added to the sentiment - LOL!
