colourQ 314!

Tuesday, October 27, 2015

Apparently I had one more Halloween card in me this year.  The latest palette at colourQ inspired this one.

I went with some simple graphic shapes on my card courtesy of the latest challenge at Sketch Saturday.  It's been a while since I put together a card that had so many different little layers and pieces!

I usually find myself going overboard making Halloween cards but this year I managed to restrain myself and only made a few.  This one uses one of my favorite bats.  He's so elegant with that swirly design on his wings!  If a bat can be elegant, that is!  Actually, I think bats (the real ones) are kind of cute.  Many years ago one got in my house and after flying around a bit it landed on a window curtain.  He looked so cute just hanging out there and I've been enamored of them ever since!  Call me crazy, I know!

My fellow colourQ teamies have made some beauties with these colors this week so make sure you check them out! I hope we'll get to see you in the gallery this week!
