More Hands, More Candy Halloween Card

This stamp just made me smile, so it had to come home with me when I saw it!  Since I absolutely fear and dread spiders, I'm surprised that this stamp even made it into my cart...but it was just too cute to pass up.  Besides, it's not creepy and crawly.
Here is the card I made with it....
I started by stamping the spider lady (Art Impressions (4641 More candy) with India Ink black, then colored her with Faber Castell Polychromos colored pencils.  I added some lines around her pupil to create an iris in her eyes, added some white dots with my white Signo gel pen, and some black glitter with my at you Spica black glitter pen to her gloves, collar, and boots.
Then I created a mask for the image with Judi Kins masking paper, and masked the image.  I used my Clarity stencil brushes, and The Crafter's Workshop stencil Mini Reversed Branches, to create the tree background.  I used TH distress inks on the background.  Next, I brushed green around the edges, leaving the center white, which created a highlight for the cute little spider lady to take center stage.  I used some Art Impressions grass for her to pose on.

Some bats finished off the panel.  I trimmed the panel down, and layered it onto some matching card stock, then onto an orange card.  The happy halloween is a stamp from my stash, which had been taken off the wood, so I'm afraid I do not know details about it.

I am adding my card to these challenges:
