Will Pope Bat Treat Box, Halloween Series 2014

In case you are wondering, I was searching the internet for funny vampire names and came across this site http://vampire.namegeneratorfun.com/ . Will Pope is my Gypsy and wonderer vampire name, LOL! Why don't you visit the site and post yours in the comments?.

Anyways, here's the third card of the Halloween Treat Box series.

Like the other ones, this box can be made from a letter size (8.5x11 inches) gray cardstock, and some gray, black, white and yellow scraps.
Inking is up to you, I think it gives it a  lot more texture. For this one I used Pumice Stone Distress ink on a dauber for the edges of the bat, and on a watercolor brush Spun Sugar for the ears and the inner part of the wings, and some ripe persimmon for the cheeks

I popped Will Pope with some 3M Mounting Foam double sided Tape and glued the words with my favourite glue pen - Aleene's Tacky glue Pen.
For the eyes and teeth, although I made the cuts, I found it so much easier to draw them with a white gel pen, but that's up to you, You'll still get them on the file in case you want to make it bigger.

For the Base card I  used Bundled Sage on a Ranger Foam Blender. Even though both were made with the same cardstock, the different color ink, makes it look so different.

I used gold metallic cardstock for the moon cutouts on the sides.

I also did my favourite technique on the words, the "Faux Highlights Technique", drawing a white line where the light is supposed to be shining on the letters. It gives it dimension.

And as if that weren't enough bling, I glued sequins for the eyes of the top bat using Vivacolor Red pen.

Hope you like it.
