It's a little bit scary!

Hi, this is my first post in a new world so please bear with me.  I have been having great fun with this  Tando round printer tray.

I painted the printer tray, the cat (a Sizzix die cut), the tree (Sizzix) and the stand with black acrylic paint.  I used Gez's paint dabber technique to add some texture to the tree trunk and with orange acrylic to add a bit of colour and texture to the stand.  The cat has also been spritzed with pewter mini mister.  The background is an orange scrapbook paper which I have embossed with various Halloween themed Sizzix embossing folders and then highlighted using Memento London Fog and Tuxedo Black and also Distress Walnut Stain.  The owl is a Sizzix die cut that has been painted with Pebeo fantasy prisme paint and decorated with other bits of bling.  The Tando mini bottle was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder, painted with purple acrylic paint and some Pebeo fantasy prisme and then covered with clear crackle paint, as shown on Gez's tutorial.  Love that effect.  It really brings out the colours while making it look old and glassy.  The tombstones and bats are dress-it-up buttons and I added a paper pumpkin to the front of the stand. 

I would like to enter this into the Tando Creative Challenge purple, orange, green and black.
