Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah

BATMAN!!!  Well, maybe after a little diet.  I think this bat's been eating owl food, 'cause he's a little pudgy, according to my dear husband.  Or maybe he's been feasting on all these crazy stink bugs we've had this year.  I wish something would eat them!

We had our final owl calendar class today, so sometime this week, I'll have pics of all the owls and instructions.  Once you get them all punched out, it's pretty simple to just glue them together. 

While the ladies were making their calendars today, I played with an idea I saw from another demo using the owl punch to make a bat.  And then I thought about Commissioner Gordon and the Bat Signal, so I punched a moon…Well, maybe you'd like to see it instead of hear me talk about it.

It's all in the wings, baby.  Turn the scallops over, and you have an owl (a funky, red-eyed rabid owl, but an owl nonetheless).  With the scallops on top – bat!  Oh, and that reminds me of a joke Serena told today –

Q:  What's a vampire's favorite fruit?
A:  Neck-tarines. 

Cute, huh?  Anyway….

Here's the supply list for the card.  Just a little note – I used Moonlight smooch paint and chalk around the light (in the stamped image), and I chalked the raised areas of the embossed layer to give it a "darker" feel.

Stamp Set:  Dark & Dreary
Ink:  Basic Gray, More Mustard classic; Stampin' Pastels
Paper:  Basic Gray, So Saffron, Basic Black, Elegant Eggplant, Riding Hood Red card stock; Love Letter Designer Series Paper
Other:  Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Owl Punch, 1-3/4" circle punch, lace trim (Raven), ticket corner punch, stampin' dimensionals, sponge dauber, Smooch paint (Moonlight)

Have a terrific weekend!
