Michael Strong Card of the Day - Miscreant Monday

This card started out with a Bister base.  I put a bit of natural Bister on some watercolour paper and sprayed with water.  I let dry and then sprayed with some home made green Bister spray.  Then I applied some Dusty Concord ink on with a diamond stencil and stamped the spooky tree from the Spooky Silhouettes set.  Here's what it looked like now:

I cut that out, sponged around the edges with Dusty Concord and matted with black.  I mounted on some Perfect Plum paper that I also added a bit of Dusty Concord on with the same diamond stencil.  I printed out Mike's digital pumpkin (I want a REAL pumpkin stamp please please Mike!) in a couple different sizes and coloured with Ripe Persimmon and Gathered Twigs markers.  Then I cut them out and applied some glossy accents all over the pumpkins and let dry.  I added a few bats, some orange brads and a glitter "Boo" sticker.
Stamps:  Michael Strong (Spooky Silhouettes)
