DAY 3- 31 Days of Halloween, Countdown to halloween, Real witches of Halloween

 Electronic candle anyone?



I made a "Votive boat",  but I shrunk it down for a battery operated Tea light. I do believe I should have made it a 1/2" taller.

The orange textured vellum I rec'd ages ago as a RAK, The ribbon is also an oldie roll of Halloween ribbon from my stash. I took the wire out of it.  The haunted house stamp is one of those $1 stamps from MICHAEL'S. I used Black STAZ-ON ink. then I smeared Cat eye fluid chalk ink in Charcoal by COLORBOK, along the edges.



 Several views with different settings on the camera.

I've never seen one of these - what a good idea! And whatever your camera did to make it look green makes a great shade of poison green.
