31 Days of Halloween - Day 19 - Big Reveal :o)

Well it's past midnight in the UK so I'm posting this now as have a day out planned :)

Well if you've been following along with the Smeared and Smudged blog hop you will have seen my previous posts giving little sneak peeks of today's full project.   I hope you're ready and that you're not disappointed!

Here we go then :


The little shadow box is from Tando, it's been really fun to do. I decided to just shade the frame slightly with Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade blended with Dusty Concord. I didn't want to paint the frame on this one as I wanted the contents in each little alcove to be the main focus.

There were two cubbies I didn't share, just because they were very simple really the top left section holds a little wooden witches hat (That Craft Place) and the one on the bottom row behind the tickets is holding just some bits of ghost confetti.   I've also added a little skull headed key to the right hand side of the outer frame.

As a reminder, these are all the sneak peeks that led us here:
  





I hope you think it was worth the wait and the suspense - thanks for sticking with it!!
