Beware Vignette Box

 Hello Friends!

I made this creepy vignette box, and I am so excited to share it with you!  

This is the largest of the Tim Holtz Vignette Boxes. And this is a box topper that was sold in 2018. (Thankful for YouTube because I couldn't remember when I bought the covers.) After I decorated the inside I glued the panels down with collage medium.

From the top: I made this candles using Tim's directions from last year. And I painted them black. The skull is Ideology a few years ago. That is cheese cloth that I sprayed with black soot distress stain, hickory smoke oxide spray, and empty tomb mica spray. In between the candles and skull I added Tim's midnight mica flakes. Originally, I was thinking mirco beads and then I was like I have something cooler than that! :)

This is a Tim Holtz ghost die cut that I inked with a little peeled paint around the edges.

The background paper is from Tim's Region Beyond paper pack. I stamped bats on the this side of it. But the bats are actually from one of Tim's embossing folder. I used a Simon Hurley Stamp block-heated it and then took the impression of the embossing folder. So Cool!

On the inside sides of the box I applied Crypt grit paste. On this side is a die cut spider (the one from just the web and spider-Tim Holtz). I used some stickles to try to make it stand out a little. So it's just kind of creeping around back there LOL.

Here is the other side with the crypt paste.

These flowers are from Funky Nature. I used some black soot distress ink on the yellow blooms to make them less bright and more spooky. The Paper Doll's dress is from a spiced marmalade distress crayon and a little water.  The candle die cut is from Tim's Frightful Things. 

There is also a Halloween Quote Chip and 2 hardware heads. The rust is from Finnabair. 

So this is cool.  Here is the finished box.

If you look you can see the paper doll's shadow. This is cool because it's like the candle is really working to create a shadow behind her. Eek! 

I am submitting this into the following challenge: 

TFJB Challenge: Creating Die-Na-Mite-use dies--Spider, Ghost, candlestick, and flowers

Thank you for stopping by today! :)
