Hanging Bat

#7 - Halloween Swap: Hanging Bat
I really loved making this card. The black and orange background paper was so perfect. The most interesting thing about this card was the moon. I printed out a bunch of photos of the moon to use behind the bat, but they looked too 'printed'. So, I found a very thin, white tissue paper and decoupaged the printed side down on the tissue, pressing firmly. Once that was almost dry, I went over the tissue side with a watered down cream colored acrylic paint to help bring the image through the tissue and add more of a moon color. Really fun card.
