Halloween Staircase

I have had these Memory Box stamps for several years and decided it was time I finally inked them up.  I stamped the staircase and chandelier in StazOn Black onto Shimmery White paper, which was cut from a Nesties small long rectangles die.  Using a post-it note I masked off part of the card to create a wall and sponged Distressed Antique Linen, Brilliance Pearlescent Beige and Distressed Vintage Photo.

The chandelier bulbs were colored with a lemon spica pen and the pumpkin with Prismacolor pencils.  I adhered this piece to a small long scalloped rectangles die cut from Basic Black.  The background paper is from the Memory Box Twilight pack, which I mounted to a piece of rust paper then onto a Black Linen card.

I decided to stamp the staircase again onto a piece of the Twilight paper and cut out the wall of the staircase and glued it below.

Drop on in was stamped in StazOn Black on a piece of More Mustard and then layered onto rust.  Both pieces were cut with the Labels Fourteen Dies.  I finished the card with a bow in rainbow pearl ribbon and glued a bat.
