Lawn Fawn: Heebie Jeebies

Today starts Inspiration Week for Lawn Fawn, and today the Lawn Fawn Design Team, known as the Fawnies are showcasing the Happy Haunting stamp set.  
I decided to make a long card (6 x 3 3/4 inches).  I originally started out using a cream/ivory cardstock layered on the black, but it looked too stark, so I changed it up and went with kraft.  Before, I started stamping, I inked the edges of the kraft cardstock to give it a more dirty/not so clean/kind of distressed look.  I stamped the tree, and colored it in with a brown copic marker (E57), then stamped a few leaves onto the tree (orange ink).  I love the fence in this set, so I knew I wanted to use the fence somehow, so I stamped the fence in front of the tree, then colored in the tops using a black pen.   Below the fence looked weird and kind of bare, so using a C1 & C3 Copic markers I tried to make a sidewalk.  It needed something else, so I added a few more leaves on the ground, and a few bats flying around the tree.  
The top corner seemed like it need some love, so I paper pieced some fun MME pattern paper, using the Bannerific stamp set, and coloring in one of the ghosts from Happy Haunting and adding it to the middle pennant.  Before adhering the kraft panel to the card base, I added some black/white bakers twine, to finish the card off. 
the Boo! sentiment is from the Heebie Jeebies set :)
