Halloween Card

I have used the same Sweet Pea Stamps image by Ching Chou-Kuik called "Exotic Halloween" for two very different cards. For this card the image has been stamped with Tim Holtz's Rusty Hinge distress ink pad, cut around the image and then bled out the ink with a watercolour pen.  I like this effect and need to use it more.  The backing papers and die-cut strip are all scraps.  The flower I have made using a Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die and inked with various shades of Promarkers in browns and a brad in the centre.  The card has been finished off with some card candi, twine and a Raindrop Echo Halloween sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
