Happy Halloween....third post today!

Well hey there bloggers
third post today!!!I am making the most of having a minute to myself to catch up on posting!!
Gosh it has turned so cold, might have to put my flip flops away for good!
Anyway, here is another orange looking card for Halloween, promise I will do different colour next time!!!
Those of you who happen here often will be shocked to find that this card has one background, not split into two halves!!!I know I had to question myself but managed not to add another part!!!The background was made using DI and then dripping large drips of water onto the colours and blotting off...I adore the effect this gives..very time it looks different and works with all colours and most size drips!!
Then to darken the drip splits in added DI in pumice stone and gently with some black soot!
The background was then overstamped with bats, swirls and cobwebs.
The main image and sentiment are from chocolate baroque.I painted the main image using DI and then added some black glaze pen to add detail.
