OOooo Spooky!

I created this card using QKR's digi RIP for LEJ Design's Dark/Gothic Challenge.   How fun and spooky is this! I also used the spider web from inkadinadoo clear stamp set.  I then covered my moon area and started distressing like crazy.  I used all Tim Holtz inks including, soot, walnut, concord and vintage.  I then airbrushed the moon with my copics and did all the coloring too.  Then I grabbed one of my favorite Martha Stewart border punches for the oooey drippy blood border and added a few coats of clear applique to really make the drippy part stand out.  I also added clear applique to the skeleton to add some dimension to the hand. 

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I did making it!
