Happy Halloween

I've made quite a simple halloween card this time. I put my energies into the backgrounds and the colouring rather than embellishments. Image is Little Witchy available at Dewdrop Craftz

I coloured with promarkers then distressed around her with milled lavender distress ink and whilst that was still wet I brushed over some versamagic chalk ink so that also bled in. The background is encaustic wax using orange for one layer then a mix of orange and purple mixer for the bottom layer which gives a spooky feel to it. I've cut just the witch out and coloured again and made that bit 3d.

I'm entering into the following challenges....
