Feelin' The Spirit....

......the Halloween spirit, that is.   I've been busy getting things done, including some not due for a month.  Want to leave on the cruise (which is in TWO WEEKS!!!!) with nothing on the to-do list.
I'm in a tag swap where the theme is Halloween, and the material that must be used is metal.  Here's what I came up with:
And for the blow-by-blow.....ran the tags through the cuttlebut spiderweb folder, added some spiced marmalade and black soot ink.
Cut the fence from balsa wood with a sizzix die, inked the pieces with vintage photo and black soot.
The bat is from Tim's Retro Halloween set.  He's done with black embossing powder and then some mustard seed ink.  Some champagne stickles on his eyes finish him off.  And he's on two layers of foam to give him a little lift.
The pumpkin is where the metal appears.  I punched three ovals for each one, using spiced rum (the color, not the drink) metal from Ten Seconds Studio.  I used one of their tiny wheels to create a little dimension, and the stem is some green craft wire.  Then I just wrote "boo" on the fence post.
