Halloween Fun

Hi There everyone, all looking forward to some Halloween Fun!!  I made this shadowbox for my second Grandson Andrew, the box was part of a set of three that I bought at one of the cheap shops ages ago, and just brought them out, this is the largest one and they are made of black plastic!!!    I used a variety of dies to make all the bits =
Cheery Lynn - Owls with Gears - Steampunk Set
Cheery Lynn-Fence B123 - Border Die
Memory Box - Creepy Web
Sizzex  - Haunted House - this is an oldie
Tim Holtz/Sizzex Alterations - Retro Halloween - this die needs a base platform.
I bought a bag of plastic Halloween things at Big W. for $5. and this had in it the white ghost, the rat on top of the box and various spiders and cockroaches,
I also used a spellbinders for the orange roses,
the little bottle of blood is actually a little bottle from a cheap shop filled with food colouring,fun putting this together I used wire curled around a pencil to make the bits that hold up the flying owl and the bats, I stood the bottle of poisoned blood on two wooden beads that I painted black, I made the flowers out of orange computer paper, the witches face was coloured with Faber-Castille water colour pencils and I stuck the plastic spiders etc on to the box with "Tarzan's Grip" because that is the strongest glue I have and the grey spider web in the top left hand side back under the spider is actually waxed paper that I put on the die before the black card and I thought it would be good there, and the little silver Halloween pumpkin is a charm that I bought from China, the fence, and spider webs were stuck on with double sided tape. Hope you all will like this, because I know that Andrew will laugh and love it,  I am entering this into Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge #153 - Halloween,
