It's Halloween at Stampotique

Hi everyone
I sadly don't get much time at the moment to play along with the Stampotique Challenge but as the current challenge is Halloween I just had to find time to play along. 
For my piece I have made a 2 sided piece using one of That's Crafty's decorative MDF shaped uprights.

this side is "But I just love a man with good bone structure"

this side is "Beware the purple mist of the 31st"

To decorate the uprights there is plenty of decoart sand texture and texture paste, Tim Holtz die cuts and some halloween items I picked up from Asda. All was given the black gesso, decoart fluid dioxazine purple and gilding wax treatment. To make my purple mist I made a tube out of acetate and soaked some wide bandage in Prima Art sculpture medium. I left that over night to dry, I then removed from the acetate and it was nice and stiff and sprayed it with Ranger Adirondack purple spray then slid it over my upright.
Stamps used are Dwindled, Miguel has a gift, Ghostie, Lovely are the sound & Halloween cube 1 which have all been coloured using Prisma coloured pencils.
