Spooky new stamps from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning all, time to start thinking of all things spooky as it won't be long until Halloween. My card today  is a Halloween gatefold card made using the fab new clear stamps 'Witches Brew'  from Chocolate Baroque

 For the front of the gatefold I brayered Tangelo memento ink on some glossy card stock and then stamped the fence using Memento Tuxedo Black. These clear stamps are perfect as you can see exactly where to position the stamp to extend the fence.

I've stamped the cobwebs around the edges and added orange roses  made using tattered pine cones and die cut swirls. Inside I created a little scene using my brayer and the spooky witch and cauldron  image. I stamped the cobwebs around the edges of the black base card and this time I used versamark ink and dusted with mica powders for a spooky shimmer

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Card mania: Handmade flowers
Corrosive Challenge: Halloween with a monster or villain
Crazy Challenge: Handmade flowers

  4. Terrific Claire - that panel on the inside almost looks like a fortune teller's ball the dimension it has. the colours are captivating & the whole so evocative Halloween - & that's from someone who does not do Halloween! the overhanging swirls with those gorgeous roses are quite stunning.
