 I am absolutely NOT a Halloween lover so this theme is a challenge for me!
Happily I purchased this great Valley Berries stamp by Memory Box 
and the inspiration came itself. 
I decided to make a scarry night scene with this branches.
Well, it's scarry for me :) if there is a spider, all the rest is scarry enough! 

First I stamped the Valley Berries on a white cardstock with Watering Can and Jet Black Archival Inks to get the shadow effect. Then I started to blend Distress Inks and spray them with water drops. The sun is just a piece of cardstock placed while applying the inks and removed leaving white space. 

When te background was ready I placed some small bats (thanks, Sandra!) and Spider Webs die cuts (thanks again, Sandra!). The worse part was to place the spiders Rub ons (thanks again and again, Sandra!) it seems they terrifying me even when they're artificial. Brrrrrrr...

Finally I put some drops of Nuvo Drops and that's it :-)
