Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 6 October 2017

 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/FRIGHT NIGHT".

Here is my inspiration post with this theme.
 For my card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Halloween Dusk".  It is available from the Etsy Store in a set along with Halloween Trio.  I have coloured my image in with Promarkers and inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Chipped Sapphire distress ink.

I have used a backing paper from Lozzy's "paper Mixed Media Set and also another backing paper from my stash.

I have used some Clearly Besotted Halloween stamps and stamped over the purple Mixed Media paper.

I have finished the card off with a die-cut skull (coloured with a dark grey Promarker, stamped with a Sheena Douglass crackle stamp and gold paper stuck behind the eye sockets), some wide lace, stamped sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Halloween set, diet some pumpkins and then for the wooden stakes I used a Sara Davies Crafter's Companion stamp.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
