DRS Challenge #244- Inspired By Color

Good morning!
Time for a new challenge at DRS Designs.

Today's color palette

I also used a grass border punch and fence border punch by Martha Stewart, Sizzix grave yard die, and I.O. little ghosties.
I brayered color onto my bg pieces and then stamped the Grim Reaper, masked and stamped the grave yard.  I used a silver color pencil to change the color of his reaping blade and I used bleach to change the color of his had to "bone" white!
The highlights were added with white acrylic paint and I also rubbed the die cut grave yard with metallic Rub-Ons.  The little ghosties have white mist drifting down from them by using a cotton swab with white Distress ink.
I made this an easel card because of the very fun Halloween sentiment that seemed to fit perfectly with this Grim fella and of course it needs a space of it's own.
If you don't know how or have forgotten how to make an easel card, it is very simple and this horizontal one goes like this:
All you need to go with this basic base is a full 4 1/4 X 5 1/2" top decorated and an inside panel of any size but part of the inside needs to be raised up to act like a catch to keep the card open.
Today I used two black pearl halves but normally I will pop up a middle layer with foam tape or dots.
