31 Days of Halloween - Day 12

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hi again from Laurie and hope wherever you are it's a beautiful fall day!  My favorite time of year and Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  We are having a ball making all sorts of spooky projects for you here at the Lost Coast Portal.  We hope you will be inspired and join the fun and enter some of your own Halloween projects.

I have these cute little bat stamps and thought they would be perfect for an ATCoin.  I'm fairly new to ATCoins but am loving making them.  If you have not tried one, they are simply a 2 1/2 inch circle decorated as you would a standard ATC.
For this one I used the Bat stamp from the Carri's Menagerie of animal stamps that are new to Lost Coast Designs.  If you have not seen them, you must check them out!  There are 30 different sets each with two stamps.  I also used the Grunge Tree background stamp.

Using some dark blue and green Distress inks, I colored a piece of white card stock, blending the two colors together.  I then die cut my circle and stamped the Grunge Tree with black Staz On ink.  I dotted some "stars" into the night sky with a silver gel pen.  I stamped my bats onto white paper with black ink and cut them out.  I darkened then up a bit with a black marker - my black ink pad has a hard time creating a completely filled in black background so I gave it a little help.

I attached the bats with some foam tape and added the word "Scary" to the bottom.  I outlined the coin with black marker and that's it!  So easy and so fun!
So join the fun at our 31 Days of Halloween challenge!!  We can't wait to see what you create!
