Halloween Greetings

I love all the Halloween stamps but don't get a chance to make many cards with them so decided I'd make one for my brother's birthday!
I made the background with Distress inkpads and then stamped various images from the Cherry Pie plate #47 Gothic Halloween. I took colour out using a water pen filled with bleach. This technique was something I saw on Hermine's blog and she's right , it's very addictive!

She had got it from Stamp Zia.

I mounted it up onto red paper stamped with the flourish bat:

and then a black card and finished it off with fibres and a pumpkin charm that I painted with Viva Coral metallic paint:

Hope he likes it!
