I got a fab blank Altoid tin from alphastamps.com and made this little Halloween scene...



The little tree is made from twisted brown paper inspired by THIS tutorial

love it! I really like how the tin is oriented as the ground, and then on the tree branch, such a great sculpture really.  As always your work is amazing and so perfect and tiny.

I especially like the blearyness of the gravestones. It makes them spookier and doesn't break the size illusion the way sharper lettering would unless it was absolutely to scale. Well done!

It's so cute, and I *love* the twisted-paper-tree idea.  I am very much stealing that.
