Just batty about bats!!! 2nd post today!!!

Well hey there bloggers!!!
second post today!!!
Today I have been playing with paint and ink and having a very messy and fairly productive time!
It makes me realise that these paints are nowhere near as good as the dylusions ones and I need the other colours,still the background is great for this card as I was overstamping and stuff!
Anyway here is my offering today..
I started with my painty background and then added stripes from Lily at the octopode factory and bats form the one and only TIM!!The image is from tiddly inks a range of digis that I am growing very fond of, and me the girl who was NEVER NEVER EVER going to do digi! Anyway here she is batty, just batty about bats and I am rather fond of the little fellas myself!
The images are all coloured in monochrome and the flowers are cut on stripy paper which I have darkened with black soot distress ink.
And yes I did have to add a few , only a few mini staples..couldn't help myself!!!
I am entering this for the following challenges:

  14. Love the monochromatic look. This is such a cool technique. Reminds me so me how of the Adams Family. You make the collage look seem effortless, I struggle with that technique, always looks muddled some how. Awesome work!
