Spooky altered art Halloween Box

Hi Everyone,thank you so much for all your support and kind comments and emails about my hacked accounts. It's all sorted now but I have lost all my if you are one of my friends I chat with,drop me an email...hard lesson learnt in backing up!!
It's all taken more time and energy than it deserves but now everything is back on track I will be catching up on visiting you.
I have a project to share with you which I absolutely love.It is the altered art I was talking about at the weekend. Before I show you I have to say that it isn't my original idea. The inspiration came from Richele Christensen. Do take a minute and have a look around her blog....just awesome.
I covered a couple of cardboard boxes with papers,inks and paint.
The main stars of the show are from the new Tim Holtz Halloween Strip.
The feet are bottle caps painted.
Of course I had to add my favourite enamel!!! Black and white....yes I know I am quite obsessed with it! LOL.
My moon was embossed with a halloween Tim Holtz folder...I just used the raven part and covered in glossy accents. I used Mini Monsters for the gravestone ..sanded and inked.
Glossy accents on tomb and wording.
I added spider web and then when I was making another candy tree with my silver glitter hot glue it gave me the idea for extra webbing. It looks really cool in real life.
I made a couple of little ones too as I know a couple of friends that will want one.
I couldn't get a good photo with it lit up(even at night).
These were so much fun to make. It was good to make all 3 at the same time as I'm not very patient waiting for things to dry (thank goodness for heat guns!!). So as I  finished distressing the last one,the first was good to go with the next stage.
I think these little trick or treaters could easily be adapted for carol you can't guess where I'm going with that?!! HeeHee.
Thanks for calling by.
