Things With Wings

This is for a Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge that I found _today_!!!  The challenge is Things With Wings.  So, bat and spiderweb wings it is!! You can click on the pictures to get a better look at what's going on in there.

I coated a cigar box with black gesso, added sewing patterns to the inside while it was wet, used punches for all the wings, inked to distress and added skulls/skeletons/creepy doll heads with armless bodies to them.  The background for the center rectangle is a phone book page inked with orange and purple ink, stamped with a pumpkin stamp and covered with fabric paint sprayed cheesecloth.  Tea dyed cheese cloth covers the outside and Spanish Moss is glued to the bottom.  Latte Aderondak alcohol ink dyed the skeletons. 

Can you find the third skeleton?
