Without the glass dome you can get a clearer view:
The base is a chipboard circle that I covered with Super Heavy Gesso. I stuck the fence and other elements (after inking, glittering etc) into the gesso and let it dry. Afterwards, I very carefully painted the "ground" green and then glued some of the landscaping foam on top to create some texture. The circle is not glued down to the base so I can swap out the little scenes and reuse the thimble dome for different seasons.
I hope you enjoyed this and it sparks some ideas of your own. I'm entering it in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog Spooky challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog Halloween challenge.
