spooky autumn tree

Hi again! 
Make My Monday is having an autumn month, and this week, it's trees. Well, I only have one full tree stamp, but it's made up of flowers and birds, so using that for autumn is pushing it a wee bit too far.

What I do have is an autumn tree in a quickutz embossing folder. So using that, some supporting stamps from TH and a vintage silhoutte printout, I created this

A spooky autumn night scene . . .

The bat & leaves silhouette has been treated with gloss gel and the moon with crackle accent.  The background is spritzed with glimmer mists and given a good dose of antique linen & fired brick DI, with vintage photo for highlights.

Do you know what else is spooky? Cupcake Craft Challenges and Everybody-Art-Challenge both have the same challenge number and theme (#163 - Halloween)! It must be a favourite theme as it's also being hosted by Simon Says Stamp and Challenge up your Life. So this little spooky tree is branching out all over those places. To round off, I'm also linking up with Papercraft Star Challenge 66 - include a leaf!

Thanks for stopping by!
