Sizzling Halloween

The Stampotique challenge is to use Red, Yellow and Orange in our artwork, so I have decided on a sizzling HALLOWEEN card.
I have used Stampotique images Halloween Cube, Tree and Swirl Stalks (all available from The Stamp Attic).
My background has been coloured with DI fired brick, spiced marmalade and mustard seed, applying the colour direct from the inkpad and spritzing with water to blend the colours.  I punched out 9 squares from the coloured card and stamped each square with an image.
I have added letters to copper jump rings, adding glossy accents and added to my card along with a skull embellishment.
To complete I have added the images to co-ordinated card stock.

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy what's left of the weekend.  Tracy x x
