3-D Halloween Frame

Welcome to Crafting with OWSE! Today I'll sharing a project I made using some of Tim's stamps. 
The base of this piece was made with a technique from Tim's Volume 11 book, Compendium of Curiosities on page 44. It's called Enameled Stamping. I used Tim's wood grain TF embossing folder with this technique.
The piece was made using Tim's cabinet card alterations die and movers and shapers die.
I used the iron fence "on the edge" die in black cardstock.

The bat is from Sizzix sizzlits strip die (Brenda Pinnick)
Distress markers were used to add color the witches and then they were covered with clear embossing and heat set. The label in center was inked with archival black and then color was added using distress markers and distress inks.
I stamped and embossed the Happy Halloween using gold cardstock from my stash.
I used heavy duty sliver paper found in the speciality section of my hobby store.
To make it look 3-D I cut out a piece of fun foam using the larger cabinet die and then trimmed it down to fit and then used Glue n Seal to adhere everything together.
If you haven't tried this glue, please do it perfect for all your projects. It comes in 1 and 3 oz. The 1 oz. bottle has an applicator in the lid. I purchase the larger bottle and refill the smaller bottle.
Thanks for Looking!
