New Halloween stamps from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, this months new stamps from Chocolate Baroque are spookilicious!! Lesley has released two a5 stamp sets with a Halloween theme and I've used some of them on this card. The stamps are called 'Put a spell on you' and Hocus Pocus', you can find them here.

Put a Spell on You Rubber Stamp sheet - A5  Hocus Pocus Rubber Stamp sheet - A5

I've used stamps from both new sets to make this card. I began by blending Distress Inks in Seedless Preserves, Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint on to a shaped card blank and then overstamped with the bats from Hocus Pocus using Black Archival Ink

I stamped the beautiful image from 'Put a spell on you' with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with Graph'It markers before blending distress inks around the image and stamping on the sentiment. 

I added some embellies and a postcard from Prima and then got busy colouring a heap of paper flowers with distress inks. I layered all the paper flowers up, misted them with water and scrunched them up. Once they were dry I added a little black enamel accents to the center of each. To finish off I've added a black bow topped with a button and some twine.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments: Fall fun plus a sentiment
Crafting for all seasons: tic tac toe (flowers, die cuts, patterned paper)
Crafts Galore Encore: anything goes
Creative Knockouts: flower power
