Another Halloween card

Yes, I know, I know I said I wouldn't make anymore but I couldn't resist using this new stamp I bought from a blogging friend.  It's a Sweet Pea stamp and she's beautiful.  I have stamped her with Tim Holtz's Rusty Hinge distress ink pad and left it overnight and then bleeded out some of the colour and used my Lyra Aquacolours to add just a tiny bit of colour.  The image I then distressed the edge of the image with my Tim Holtz distressing - I love this tool - and then inked the edges with the brown chalk ink pad.  I have used some K & Co papers that I thought were Okish for what I wanted but then I stamped various different leaf stamps around the edge in Versafine green and brown.  I used one of my new star die-cuts and inked the edges with a chalk ink pad.  The card is then finished off with some flowers with brads in the centre and a Happy Halloween sticker.
