This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 292 - Stamping on Tissue. Thanks Joan for reminding me how much I love to do this. I have been stuck on digis so much I almost forgot how to put ink to paper. LOL.
My layout is today's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 86 - Sketch Inspired by cookiebaker. I love this layout and use it quite often when I am stumped so this fit right in.
My dp is Recollections halloween stack from the past. I love this and will be sorry when it is all used up. My image is from Stampin Up's House of Haunts. What a spooky looking old house. I stamped in black on white tissue, glued to some vanilla after coloring the moon and inside windows on the back side with a Y00 copic marker then sponged some Tea Time distressing ink around the edges to give it an aged look and tone down the white. My focal image is popped up on dimensionals. I hope you can see it but I made a bat button out of my Martha Stewart bat punch, topped it with my Spica glaze pen and threaded some yellowish hemp thru the button holes. HOpe you like it.
ETA: I wished now and probably will add some pale plum or perfect plum on top of the black strip so the bat button can be seen better.

Super cool Neva. Love the touch of purple on here.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
