Addicted to Stamps and More #165

We have a photo challenge for you this week at Addicted to Stamps and More.
I've been in the mood for Halloween cards lately but this one had me stumped for a while. I have a tendency to take these things too literally but once I let myself go I ended up with this.
The first step was to ink up my panel with Distress Inks, let dry and mount on Pure Black cs.  Then I brought out the Moonlight stamp set from Winnie and Walter.  The number is stamped and clear embossed and the pumpkins are colored with Zigs and fussy cut.  The bat and sentiment are from the same set and stamped in VersaFine Black.

The prize for this week's winner is a $10 gift certificate from Stamplorations.

Winnie and Walter are having a Rerun challenge using Moonlight, so I'm sending my card over there, too.
I have a two-fer for you.  I inked up another background but didn't like the order of the inks so put it aside. Not wanting to waste it, I decided to have some fun.
I did a Krisina Werner and splattered water droplets all over the card and then added some black splatters. I had the foresight to stamp and color another set of pumpkins so they were stacked like the previous card over a stamped and embossed sentiment from CB.  I almost like this one better.

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope you join us at Addicted to Stamps and More this week.
