Three Little Ghouls Day 8

Day 8 of the Countdown to Halloween and
I have been feeling a little under the weather, so this is going to
pretty quick and painless today.

One of my favorite places to shop online is Retro Cafe Art.
They have some of the coolest schtuff for mixed media crafting.
I love their shrine kits and ATC door shrines. This is a Halloween Fairy Box. 
I used a  crackle technique, and I really like the way it turned out.   

I had to make an ATC to go with it, didn't I? 
I used a new, yet super simple technique for the background,
and '3 in a Round', from Stampotique.
I fussy cut the fellas out and recreated their spiral like the
original stamp. 

I can fit quite few ATCs in this thing. Maybe I'll have it filled 
by the end of the month. 

Thanks for stopping by today.
See ya tomorrow!
