Charming Bat Motel!

I just had to try Faux Postage with the Bat Motel image from The Rubber Cafe! I notice now that my postage is outdated...but hey, these babies are collectible!!

I do my faux postage a little differently. I have some low tack narrow masking tape that I tape over the postage lines. I color the image, mask it, and then sponge the purple ink over entire panel. I sponged so I would get the *streaks* coming from the house for spook effect!

Two other images on this card are from The Rubber Cafe as well. Charming and the Halloween Candy. For the candy, I colored it with Copic Markers and Spica Glitter Pens and then covered with Glossy Accents, so they look like wrappers! One of my favorite decorative scissors is the Fiskars Postage Scissors....just perfect for this card!

Thanks for taking a peek! Be sure to check out Melissa's entire Halloween collection HERE!

I love this, Michelle. Love the images you used, and what a great idea with the candy in the corner on the bottom.
I always wanted to try this faux postage, and can't believe I haven't yet.
