Boo to you

Good morning everyone. I am really into making Halloween cards at the moment and here is my latest.

This card is very different to my usual makes as it's the first time I have used a background created using distress inks. I've always admired cards made like this so was keen to give it a try.The distress inks I've used are Seedless Preserves and Spiced Marmalade with a little Black Soot around the edges.

The images are stamped using stamps from Hero Arts (Skelton Dancing) and Hot off the Press (Bats with Swirls), which I recently won in a Facebook giveaway on the Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine page. I used Staz On ink for a crisp image. I then stamped the gravestone again separately using Momento ink and coloured with Spectrum Noir markers, adding it on top of the first image.

The background papers are Graphic 45 Eerie Tale and the ribbon is by Groves. I finished with some purple gems to bring the colours together. 

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
Fantasy Stampers Fright Night
