Halloween Scary-Go-Round

I had such fun creating this Halloween Scary-Go-Round for 
giving it a Halloween makeover.
I hand painted a horse skeleton on a piece of black paper 
to fit her carousel horse ,
then just photo copied a few more for the rest of the horses.
and used a Bat cut out for the top.

For the center I painted some velum with Tim Holtz alcohol inks, 
die cut his little Trick or Treats kids circling the velum tube 
then just popped in a electric tea light.
