Eye of Newt and blood of bat...

All go into this potions card for Halloween.  This is a peek a boo card and one of my favorite to make.


I used a free download template from the internet for the potions bootle and cut out the inside of the front.  I used the piece I removed as a template for the inside.  With an ink pad, I randomly stamped on the front of the card and then smudged the ink with my finger tips.  I wanted the "glass" bottle to appear old.  To add even more of an aged look, I used crackle on the top of the smudged ink.





I cut a piece of the G45 Steampunk Spells paper for the inside and another for the peek through bottle label.  I cut the bat out of one of the sheets of the paper pack and painted on Distress Stickles.  I used  metallic effects paint for the bats eyes.  I mounted the bat on the front of the card with pop dots to add interest and dimension.  Attach a cord and voila! Happy potions card!

I have so enjoyed being the guest designer for this month and hope you found some inspiration in my Halloween themed projects.  My thanks to all.
