Happy Daze Halloween Challenge - Something wicked comes!

I'm not the best at doing paper crafting of any sort, but I thought that I would have a go at the 'Halloween Challenge' on the Happy Daze blog.
I had a rummage around among my old cds and finally found the one I was looking for.
I bought a set of three from the USA years ago which have examples of all things Victorian - like vintage photos, labels, etc.

 I printed out some images and used some of them to create a collage
 It actually looks more colourful in real life.  I think that the fact that I rubbed on Renaissance wax to the collaged images to give it a lovely sheen and feel of leather, has reflected the flash light and made it look pale!
The colours are darker and much richer than shown here.
The stamped chandelier is a free one from a magazine.
And the quote 'Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where their is no path and leave a trail'
I can't remember the manufacturer and the stamp is in my garden studio and I'll not go out there in the rain and dark  - so will amend this post tomorrow!  It's part of a set with a vintage balloon etc on it!
