Haunted Dress Shop

Hey there Peeps. Ginny here to share a Halloween project created with some fabby chippies from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.
It's a haunted dress shop!!! How fun is that?
I'm using the frame to the Coffin Box to create a bit of a shadow box.

There's a glittery flourish layered over a fussy cut spiderweb.
Flowers with netting add a great texture.
The dress form has a spooky inspired outfit on all ready for a Halloween party.
I wiped down the chippies to prepare them for finishing.
 A little trick I've learned while cutting down paper to fit inside something is to add a bit of a folded tab so you can easily pull the paper out if you need to until you get the shape trimmed just right.
Painting the coffin box lid and flourish frame with a creamy acrylic in metallic black.
Now adding silvery embossing powder then heat setting.
Beginning the outfit with a striped patterned paper.
Using a doily patterned paper to create a skirt.

Two layers of doily topped off with a spiderwebby pattern on velum.
 Many layers of foam tape to secure the dress form in the coffin shadow box. This also adds nice dimension.

Last but not least....a haunted sign and fussy cut bat.
