Halloween Inspired Wooden Frame

Hello again everyone!! Over at Joy's Life DT, we will be showing you all sorts of Fall Home Decor projects this week! How fun is that! When I think of Fall, I think of oranges, browns, muted greens and yellows, and Halloween! Yes, I said Halloween! For my project, I embellished a wooden frame I picked up at Ikea. You can pick this up at any craft store like Michael's, Joann's, etc. It was Halloween inspired :-) 
So here is how I created this. First, I used different colors of paint to outline the frame. Once it dried, I used Tim Holtz Black Soot Distress Ink and went over the paint to give the colors a muted look instead of having bright colors. 
Aren't these bottles cute?! Well these bottles and the rest of the images are cuts from a 12x12 sheet of cardstock I had picked up at my local scrapbook store TWO years ago! LOL 
The sentiment is from Halloween PunsI love this stamp set! You can really do so much with it, not just Halloween projects! The sentiment mat is a tag from Once Upon a Princess cartridge.  
Here's a side view. I pop dotted the sentiment mat to give it some dimension, I hope you can see it.
