Bombshell October Hump Day HOP!!!

Happy Halloween everyone!!
I adore this time of the year and am really pleased that Alison has chosen a cool HAlloween theme for our Hump Day Hop!

"Hello Everyone! Welcome to my favorite month of the year! So of COURSE I had to do a Halloween theme. This month's theme is "Witching Hour." The witching hour is the time of night when witches, ghosts, and other supernatural creatures are said to appear. Make a project about those that may be lurking, during the witching hour.'

Here's my project, a cool bar for all the gorgeous Witches to hang out at!

I created a shadow box and covered it with Authentique 'Glowing' Halloween papers
For the front I used a roughly 6' x 5.5" square of covered card and cut a Tim Holtz Vintage Cabinet Card Sizzix Alterations shape from the centre.

I used the Tim Holtz Cobwebs Sizzlets Decorative Strip die and the Martha Stewart Cobweb punch to punch out cobweb strips which I stuck to the back edge of the front section of the shadowbox.

I used Man's Ruin Stamp set but coloured up with green skin (Spectrum Noir LG1, LG2, LG3) and purple hair (Spectrum Noir PL3, PL3, PL5)
I added a witch hat from the Holiday Accessory Set coloured to match the Witch's dress (spectrum Noir OR1, OR3, CR11)
I also used the following Bombshell stamp sets:
Holiday Accessories for Broom and Cauldron
Sugar Skulls
Dead Necessities
Tattoo Background
