For my card I chose this sweet little bunny and kitty image from the Creep it Real set. I was feeling the need to take a break from the Christmas releases to do something a little more in season, so chose to make a fun Halloween card.

The image is colored with Copics and hand trimmed.  I stamped the sentiment on a die cut from the Stamped Square CutUps, and matted with the outer square stamp frame from the same die set.  I added a few bats using The Neighboohood stencil with wilted violet and black soot inks, then coated with crystal clear lacquer pen and dusted with glitter.

The background was also created with The Neighboohood stencil.  I love that this stencil set also includes the mask, so you can easily create a super spooky scene.  I first used the stencil part with wilted violet for the bats, hickory smoke for the tombstones, and frayed burlap on the tree.  I shaded each with pumice stone for a little variation in hue.  Next I removed the stencil and placed the mask over my stenciled images.  I then did a blend from gray to purple to black for a super spooky look.  The bats blended in to my dark sky a bit, so I outlined them with a silver pen, then layered everything together.
