I made this for my partner in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap.  I had a REALLY hard time sending it away cause I was so happy with how it turned out.  I used a little shadow box thingy that I found at Dollar Tree and spray painted it black.  Then I used papers, charms, beads, etc to decorate each portion.  Almost all of the supplies were from Alpha Stamps and Retro Cafe Art Gallery.











It's not the best picture but my favorite element is the skull in the glass tube.  I glued the skull bead to a paper bead I received in a swap, then glued the bead to the cork and shoved some fake moss stuff up in there before I glued the cork to the bottle.

This is so stinking cute!  What an awesome job you did!

I have never found those shadow box thingies at Dollar Tree. I keep hearing about them, but never see them.  Cry

I found them there once a few years ago and picked up two or three.  This was my last one Sad  I have found something somewhat similar by Tim Holtz but they are obviously way more than $1

love this!!  and the little gargoyle you have on top?  I have him too!!  Grin

shadowboxes at Dollar Tree?!  NO FAIR!!!  that Tim Holtz configuration box is $10 for the smallest one (there are at least a couple of sizes but I've only found the one size in stores).  I got it for $5 since I had a coupon for 50% off, but still.  I want the Dollar Tree one!!!  Sad  Sad  Sad
