Here's my card!

I decided to mix things up and used the pumpkin and gravestone from the Beyond the Grave set with the cutie cat girl from Hey Ghoulfriend!

I first stamped all images onto Eclipse tape and fussy cut them to be used as masks. Using my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped the cat girl, masked her, stamped the gravestone, masked it, and then stamped the pumpkin. I kept the masks on, taped a horizon line using repositionable Scotch Tape, then airbrushed the sky using the Copic Airbrush system. When I was done, I used a toothpick to load a toothbrush with Opaque White, then flicked the brush to create a sprinkling of stars. The sky was covered with Post-It Notes and I airbrushed the grass.

All masks were  lifted and I colored the scene with Copic markers. I used Memory Box' Debutante Frame to die cut orange patterned paper from the Enchanted 6x6 pad by Authentique. The Creepy Web Frame was die cut from Black cardstock. I layered the frame over the stamped scene, then layered the Creepy Web Frame over that. A Memory Box Dangling Spider was die cut from black cardstock, his legs were gently bent, and his body popped up a bit.  He was positioned to hold the sentiment in his feet (claws, mandibles, whatever they're called)!
