Hello Ghosts, Ghouls, Witches and Goblins everywhere and Welcome!!
As it is Hallowe'en today I thought I would share with you my latest creation! It is a long picture heavy post so the cauldron is on, get yourself a cup of Poison, maybe grab a few Dragon's Breath cookies or some Frog Spawn pudding and take a peek. It is not like we are going to see too many Witches out and about tonight! It is pouring down here so there will be many a fire damped down. Hope you like....
A Maya Road Post Box which I ordered from USA about 4 years ago "just because" and have been gathering little bits and pieces and ideas waiting for the right time to make this box into something magical.
Be careful of the bottle of poison on the left. The Owl at the back is keeping his beady eye on you too!
Some Roses made from the Tattered Pinecone die by Tim Holtz.
And no Hallowe'en project would be complete without a Haunted House complete with rusty railings.
And inside a little book of Potions ....
Notice the glow in the dark skeleton hiding on the ring?
The box was first painted black with acrylic paint dabber and then papered with flock papers from MME.
Home made Fimo Bats!
Here are the feet....two bottles of Witches Brew and two bottles of Hobgoblin Brew were drunk to create this project! All in the name of Art don't you know?
I am going to enter this project into the following Challenges:-
CC101 - Holiday anything goes!
Snippets with Pixie- anything using snippets
Inspiration Emporium - Spooktacular Decorations
In my haste to post this project last night (technical issues - grrr) I forgot to post it into the Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp. whose challenge is Pearls. Although the photos don't show them up very well, there are Perfect pearls on the book as well as all being sprayed with both Heirloom Gold and Forever Red liberally. In fact my Craft room floor is glimmering right now!
Terry has very kindly let me know of another Challenge blog which I have not come across before, and I can pop this piece on there. Please go and see them there is some fabulous Spooky work over there. Link is HERE and it is Fashionable Stamping Challenges!
Off you go Trick or Treating and I hope you get lots of healthy treats!! Honest!
