Don't you just love haunted houses? Where the door creaks open and Boo! comes from no where?

I have fallen in love with shadow boxes and decided that is what I wanted to make so here it is...

 There was a glare on the glass that I was helpless to shot without.

I am so proud of this house. I designed it and made the svg in Inkscape. I've made a few other things but this one so far is the best. It needs some more work so I'm not passing the file on quite yet but I plan to in the next week or so, so please check back often if you are interested in grabbing it.

 I used regular Mod Podge on the witch. I dabbed it on to give it a uneven layer. The moon has gliter Mod Podge but I just couldn't get a good picture. It really sparkles.

These two show the layering I did. I had up to three layers I was working with.

Paper Used: K & Company stack like what I am giving away.
          DCWV: The Midnight Spell stack from last year and the Harvest Gathering Stack from this year.
Bats, spiders, and Pumpkins stickers:  Darico
Gravestones: Martha Steward gravestone punch and stamp set
Cricut Cartridges: October 31st - tree cut at H8 inches linked (twice - once in a solid green and once in wood designed paper) , gate cut at H2.00 inches linked
     Happy Hauntings - witch cut at H2 inches linked
     3 Birday on Parade - yellow background moon cut at W3 inches and H 6.69 inches and green moon
                                     cut at W 2. 90 x H 6.47
Ghosts: Free SVG file from Images by Heather M using transparency paper.
Ribbon: Studio g
