CHALLENGE #109 - FURRY FRIENDS and 31 Days of Halloween Day 15 - A Bat-tallion of Bats

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!
Hello Portal Peeps.  Gail here today.  The 31 Days of Halloween continue but, as is our tradition, we like to also offer a midmonth challenge with an alternative theme for our not so spooky friends.  We will also be sponsoring the Cat Lovers Hop later this month, so with that in mind our new challenge is......



Shared your stamped makes featuring something furry.  It doesn't need to be Halloween or spooky if you don't want, as long as there is a furry something and stamping.  Real rubber or clear stamping and the theme must be the focus of your project.  A small stamped sentiment in a sea of die cuts or digi images will not qualify to win the prize and you may be deleted!!!!  Bwahahhaaahaha.

Please remember we do have some Challenge Rules to follow so look them over to ensure your entries qualify to win this month's prize!

Here's my inspiration for the start of the new challenge.   I'm keeping it spooky with a midnight trip to the forest.  The moon is full, the bats are flying and Werewoves are aboard.  Well, one Werewolf.....
I stamped Lost Coast Designs Tall Trees Background on Bazzill Avalanche card and heat embossed with black powder.  I blended various distress inks to create the full moon look.  The Bazzill has a bit of texture and I thought it gave quite a cool effect to the embossed trees and also the ink blending.
I stamped, coloured and fussy cut Lost Coast Designs Werewolf

I added Werewolf to the card and also some tiny bat shaped sequins that have just flown in from England from my crafty friend Jo.  Thanks Jo.  Did I mention they are tiny??  A few escaped while I was trying to glue em down.....  Bat hunting later.....

Now it's your turn.  Are you up for the challenge?  We can't wait to see your projects!

Those little bat sequins are so tiny, but just perfect for this card. Is your werewolf really a furry "friend"?
