Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale Collection} Configurations Print Tray

I've had this Tim Holtz Idea-ology Configurations Tray for a while-waiting for the perfect paper line-the perfect line that was Configurations Tray worthy: Graphic 45 An Eerie Tale Collection hit the mark.
Each box captured my imagination and I love the individual stories each box gets to tell: what's in that bottle? Don't you want to find out?
 There is something alluring about the "dark" side of life-
 A Graphic 45 shabby chic ornate metal key is the perfect embellishment for the candy house, right?
 What's inside that secret pocket?
 I love to show off my collections of pictures and bones?
 The Configuration Tray's boxes offer lots of opportunity for dimensional layering like this corrugated trading card piece inked with Distress ink and embellished with a Maya Road flower which has been colored with Distress markers. The stamp is a sticker : 
 Use tissue tape to hold it all together. I used a green with dots tape around the outside and a black with vine over the edges to add a finished look and secure the boxes in place.
Each box was colored with Distress inks mixed with water, painted on and then dried.
An Eerie tale papers were cut to fit in each box, layered with additional papers, stickers, die cut flowers, or pockets.
This Halloween project was fun to create because it gave me a chance to use a lot of the lumpy dimensional embellishments I love that are too bulky to use on a layout or card.
 Each box was inspired by the paper line and it's embellishments.
