Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - 21 October 2011

Another fortnight has come around and it's time for another Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge.  This fortnight the challenge is "scary/Halloween".
For my card I have used the Ching Chou-Kuik image called "Exotic Halloween".  I have stamped the image with a sepia Versafine and used my Lyra Watercolours to colour the image in for change from my Promarkers.  The backing papers are Basic Grey and are a fab quality for really distressing with Tim Holtz's distressing tool.  I used half a doily which I inked with a green chalk ink pad.  The ribbon was originally orange but I coloured black with my Promarker.  The card is finished off a computer generated sentiment, spooky pumpkin charm, Summertime Designs digital bats cut out and a gorgeous flower that a friend made me from a Paper Artsy die with a button centre.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Basic Grey - Autumn/Fall/Halloween (I have used a black distressed paper and a green paper from the Basic Grey Boxer paper pad)
