Breaking news! I had an idea for a holiday decoration and I actually got it done for the upcoming holiday! Not the following year, but THIS year. Woo hoo!! That never happens. I get great ideas and then never have a chance to get it done in time. But this year, I have a new Halloween decoration all done and it's only Oct. 2nd! Truly this is ground-breaking for me. ;-)
I purchased a new Halloween themed stamp set by Tim Holtz and wanted to put it to use. I found this great glass box and thought it would be fun to make a little scene inside. For the house, I used an idea from one of Tim's 12 tags of Christmas, altering the colors appropriately. I made a little 3D tree with another Tim die and covered it with brown crackle paint (looks cool, trust me). I stamped the trick or treaters and spider webs directly on the glass panels which fortunately were held in place with metal tabs and not glue so I could take them out for stamping. I "landscaped" with various colors of fallish foam and lichen bits. The pumpkin is something I made years ago out of polymer clay when I was big into dollhouse miniatures. I hope you like my box. It was tough to get one photo to show all that is going on in there. Enjoy!
This fits the Frilly and Funky Fall into Fall challenge and the Inspiration Emporium Spooktacular Decorations challenge. Thanks for the opportunity to enter these challenges and be motivated to get this done! (For this Halloween. Did I mention that?)
