Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 7 October 2016

  Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog. 

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "HALLOWEEN/SOMETHING SPOOKY".

Here is my inspiration post with this theme.
 For my card I have used one of my all time favourite Ching-Chou Kuik Halloween images called "Halloween Trio".  I have coloured my image in with Promarkers and used Pan Pastels and ink for the background.

The backing papers I have used are from Summertime Designs.  I have used some Clearly Besotted Halloween stamps to add the "BOO" and bird to the backing paper and image.

I have finished the card off with some raffia ribbon (this was originally purple but I paint with Hobbycraft gold acrylic paint), black fibres, ticket sentiment, buttons, Sue Wilson Finishing Touches Greenery (I die-cut out of silver mirri card and coloured with orange/green/brown Promarkers) and some die-cut black/gold tissue paper flowers.
