Day 13 of the S&S 31 Days of Halloween

Unlucky for some 13 but for those superstitious people - at least it's not a Friday!
The Rules for this awesome blog hop organised by Smeared and Smudged are available here on the forum and at Terra's blog. There you will also find a list of all the sponsors arranged for each day as prizes are available available on a daily basis so even those that can only manage a few days - there is something.
The list of Wicked Bloggers is over in the right hand bar of this blog should you need it and if you are following the order you should have arrived from the one and only Valerie.

Today's offering from me is rather cute. So if you weren't expecting that - look away now and head on to Sharon's Blog.

If you can bear to go down this road with me... this is today's project.
Three wooden boxes destined for the hands of children who all happen to be 7 years old.
Each box contains a battery powered tea light.
The outsides were painted florescent orange before the rock candy layer. Then inside and out were given a wash of florescent lime green paint. The edges all painted black.
The stamping?
That's on the sides.
 The two outer images are digis from Rick St Dennis - They happen to have been named after me and I was super chuffed that the man himself chose to depict me as a Witch in his new Euro set. The images in the middle are from a vintage set by Rusty Pickle.

Again the images on the outsides are Rick St Dennis - Skull with Roses and Ichabod, and the centre one from Rusty Pickle.
The Rusty Pickle images are all heat embossed in black on orange card.
All the Rick St Dennis images are coloured with promarkers
All the boxes were then given a coat of Glow in the Dark Mod Podge

Talking of Rick - There's some super giveaways both on his blog AND the new challenge blog AND on Facebook AND on the group in Paper Craft Planet. There will be 13 giveaways and a discount code for the shop to be found.

Want a close up? Well clicking on the images should get you that, but here for your convenience...

That's all for today folks.
Off you fly to Sharon's Beautiful blog, BUT don't forget to check out those freebie's of Rick's, will you. Remember it's just Saturday - 9am PST - so this evening for us in the UK.
