I used the Iron gate from the Cuttlebug Heritage set, and embossed only the upper portion with my hard rubber mallet on white cardsock. I then skimmed my Distress pad Black Soot" over the high points and embossed with JudiKins Rustique Tin Can - love this stuff, then sponged the black over the whole piece. Stamped portions of a bat stamp (Inkadinkado "Happy Haunting") in the sky area.
The pumpkin was made using 2 Spellbinders circles, dry embossed and then portions re-cut with the same die, sponged Distress Spiced Marmalade and then assembled. I added some embossing using a Papermate "Eraser Mate" pen and embossing with the Rustique Tin. Die cut the green flourishy thing with Spellbinders "Floral Flourishes" from green metallic textured paper. Stamped the spider (Inkadinkado) and the word Halloween (Quietfire Design) with Versafine Black Onyx.
Layered it on to a white card which I sponged the Marmalade around the edges.
