Halloween shadow box

Was playing today and made this halloween themed box. The container was a clear plastic box, bought as an atc storage box. I have painted it with black acrylic paint and then rubbed some inka gold in copper all over it.

The background is a tree embossed on metal. There are paper leaves stuck inside. The moon is moulded clay and stuck on with a piece of dowling to make it 3d. Hanging from that is an owl charm. The grave stone was a wooden domino, which i have painted and cut at an angle. The gargoyle is another game piece from the Scooby Doo game. This was plain grey plastic but with the help of my trusty acrylic paint and more inka gold and metallic rub-ons, I have turned it into a statue.

Coloured some fabric and stuck it in the bottom, along with a hand moulded in clay. On the front cover I stamped a fence and stuck on a bit more fabric.
