Fear the Midnight Hour cooked challenge canvas

We've been at it again, challenging each other to make things from the same list of ingredients.
A fab idea we pilfered from the wonderful  Ellen Vargo and Hels Sheridan.
Me & my crafty bud Trace aka inkypinkycraft have been Skyping each other and seeing what we both have in our crafty stash, so we came up with this little list below.  

Here is our list of ingredients
Mini canvas board
Residences Art Parts
Die cuts
Paint
Gesso
Distress Ink
Stamps

Mystery ingredient
Rock Candy

Here is the result of the cooked challenge. A Halloween mini canvas.


The background is mostly a dark blue and when you move it to reflect the light you can see all the interference paint. On these pictures the camera has picked up on all the interference paint, so it looks lighter than it is. I painted Ranger's Rock Candy on the Tree, the pumpkins and the cat!

My cats keep coming in from the garden with those little stickley (seed) balls on them, that I have to pull off every night. Well I used one of those for the door handle! Us crafter's are resourceful if nothing else!


I wonder what delights we come up with next time Trace. 
Can't wait.

This is just fab! Love all the layers and depth and the contrasting colours. I had better come back later to continue my trawl through your blog now I have found you, as I am starting to look like a mad stalker with all these comments,
