hex shadowbox light by Leigh
My Day 15 of 31 Days of Halloween Hop inspiration for you today is an enchanted hexagonal shadowbox light featuring Poe Gnome and Grim Batleigh from the SPOOKtember 2020 release and the Enchanted Garden Cobblestone Cottage.

Poe Gnome lives in an enchanted garden under a magical amethyst sky where everything is tinted purple, including Poe and his pet raven!  
Poe Gnome lives in an enchanting purple Cobblestone Cottage surrounded by tall purple trees where silver spiderwebs sparkle in the moonlight.
At night when he's writing poetry by his fire the stars twinkle with a mysterious green light!
 I had so much fun making this hexagonal shadowbox light. 

I modified a Silhouette Design Store hexagonal shadowbox cut file by Tanya Batrak and used just the shadowbox frame, tiny bat and branches.  Also from Silhouette is the grass border by Paige Evans and the fabulous spiky Halloween border by Rivka Wilkins.  Everything was cut out of black cardstock and then I painted it with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Amethyst glitter ink so everything has a lovely purple tinted shimmer.

Poe Gnome, Grim Batleigh and the Enchanted Garden Cobblestone Cottage are all coloured with a purple Prismacolor pencil and fussy cut out.  I used yellow and 2 shades of orange to the colour all the windows for a pretty firelight glow.
There are many weird and wonderful critters lurking in the enchanted garden so Grim Batleigh is happily flying around keeping a watchful eye on things!
 For the background I used Wilted Violet and Black Soot Distress Oxide Sprays and Black Soot Distress Stain Spray on watercolour cardstock to create a pretty twilight sky then stamped Tim's "Life of the Party" spiderweb stamp in Spectrum Noir Silver Midas ink.
Then I added drops of dimensional Delta Ceramcoat glow-in-the-dark paint.
The final touch was to install the dew drop fairy light string for a truly magical scene!

 That spooktacular skelly tree was a gifty from my sister which I painted with the same Distress Sprays and splattered with Tarnished Pewter Distress Stain spray.  It goes faBOOlously with my hex Poe Gnome shadowbox lightπŸŽƒ
