All Hallows Eve

I thought I'd best get into the 'spirit' of things and do something for Halloween.  This piece came about via a happy accident, well the background did anyway.  I was determined to use some of my new stuff, so I got out my Lily inks and used dark spice over the tree stencil I picked up last weekend at The Dome.  I sprayed onto a tag (which is coming up next).  So as not to waste the ink I grabbed a piece of tissue paper and voila the background was created!!  I then painted a piece of corrugated in a black and white mix to make a sort of grey.  Stuck on a couple of strips of frayed fabric, some sort of muslin I think and painted them too.  The bats, ghosts, headstone and  Boooo word are all die cuts.

I am entering this piece into the Stamp Man Challenge as their theme this week is night time.
