Spooky Tree

HI all - Now Halloween is not a theme I normally create for, but there are lots of Halloween challenges about and  I have this great skull stamp set from Stamp Addicts so I have been playing. I stamped the skull in Pumice stone Distress ink on the card blank, then added inky layers to an old book page with a tree stencil and spray inks - Dylusions and perfect pearls, which I then layered on brown and burgundy cardstock.

The gold embossed tree is also from Stamp Addicts and is actually part of a Christmas set, but I've added shrink plastic skulls instead of a Partridge and pears ! Here's a closer look - 
The letters are die cut and sponged with gold ink.
I'm sharing this card over at -
This was different for me and I enjoyed creating our of my usual style – thanks for stopping by – Esther xx
