This is a card I created with Artistic Outpost's new Haunted Halloween stamps.  I think this is the prettiest witch I've ever seen!
She was so fun to color with Copics (see photo below).  She was my inspiration and starting point.  The house is stamped on a tag that I had sprayed with Glimmer mist.  I used Ranger Archival Jet Black ink.  I stamped the bats in the corners and added a touch of color to the windows with a Copic marker.  I trimmed it close to the stamped image.
The gold/orange mat is card stock stamped repeatedly with the spider webs.  I used several different colors of Memento inks.  I sprayed it with Glimmer Mists Dreamsicle, Wheatfields, and Sunshine. 
I stamped the bats repeatedly over the card front using Memento London Fog ink. The pebbly pattern at the bottom of the card was stamped with the end of the bats stamp that has tiny bats. I thought it worked for a cobblestone effect!
I inked "haunting" from the stamp "A haunting we will go" on a scrap of the same paper as the gold/orange mat.  I used Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed it.  I freehand cut it out and added a narrow black mat.
It's certainly a different take on Halloween colors!
