Trick or treat

Hello and welcome
I have colored one of the handsome fellows from the Tim Holtz monster reunion stamp set using my prismacolor pencils and made this Halloween card. I haven't done one for years. And I would like to play along in the Simon says stamp monday challenge the theme is spooky.

I started by making the background using black metallic kraft from Tim Holtz (TH). I run it trough my cuttlebug using the 3D impresslit folder foundry (a favorite of mine). I then sanded the surface when still in the folder the same way Tim Holtz showed in his latest facebook live show and inked it with distress ink vintage photo to give it a warmer tone to go with my colored image. I then cut two panels to put behind my background, one using watercolor cardstock colored with oxide spray pumice stone and one orange core'dination cardstock with sanded edges. 

I then made the larger orange panel. It's a sanded orange metallic kraft sheet colored with vintage photo. I had to piece out this panel to fit behind my layers as the metallic sheet is 8x8 inch (20x20 cm) and my card is 6,3x11 inch (16x28 cm). I stamped spider web from the set tangled webs with archival ink jet black on the upper two corners.

I then diecut the letters for 'trick or treat' using the handmade alphabet. They are diecut in both chipboard and black metallic kraft treated the same way as my background above using the same 3D folder and ink. I then glued the metallic kraft letters onto the chipboard letters. The word 'or' is made with the thinlits die alphanumeric label.

The spiders are diecut in black alcohol ink paper. They are from the thinlits die set frightful things as well as the paper pumpkins, the witch hat and the spider web. I have used orange core'dination cardstock for my pumpkins and the spider web and for the back side of the pumpkins I used black sanded metallic kraft colored with distress ink vintage photo. I wanted some texture on the witch hat so used texture paste graphite from Finnabair. It dries almost black and is a little sparkly and when completely dry I used archival ink monarch orange to give it a touch of orange. Doesn't he look great in the witch hat!? What don't you do for a little candy....lol 

The black house is made with the thinlits die set ghost town. I colored watercolor cardstock with black gesso and when dried I diecut the house and cut a piece of orange metallic kraft to put behind. 

The candy is made with the thinlits die set santa's helper, diecut in black metallic kraft and treated with the same procedure as my background and letters above using the 3D folder and distress ink.

At the bottom of my card I have stamped a sentiment from the Tim Holtz/Simon Says Stamp/Stampers Anonymous stamptember 2019 stamp set (I'm so happy I got this set, they are sold out now and will not come again). If you have the monster reunion set and/or the stamptember set you know all these stamps comes with a sentiment each and the one I used belong with the funny bird in the stamptember set. Love the hardware heads, use them all the time. Here one on each side of the sentiment.

The image is colored with my Prismacolor pencils and fussy cut.

I decorated with some TH idea-ology pieces: metal decorations, mini pumpkins, mummy cloth, fringe and broomstick. The metallic pieces are colored with distress crayons rusty hinge and black sooth as well as the pumpkins and the broom stick. To color the mummy cloth I used distress oxide spray rusty hinge.

The base is orange cardstock with a silver metallic corrugated cardstock from stash on top. I have another panel behind the larger orange metallic kraft panel made with watercolor paper and distress oxide spray pumice stone.
