day 5 of Creepmas blog hop with RSD

Hi and welcome to the fifth day of the first annual Creepmas Blog Hop with Rick St Dennis and his wonderful EDT ladies - we will be hopping for 13 days starting Saturday Dec 1, 2012 with new projects and new images every day for 13 days. Don't forget the daily contest - somewhere in the blog hop there is a new image that just rolled out that day when you find it post on that blog and then rush back here and post what the image is and where you found the new image - you must be first on BOTH blogs to post in order to win the image - you will also win the new image from Rick's blog - yes there are 2 images per day being rolled out. The blog roll can be seen over on the left, starting with Rick's "Airless Chambers" blog and ending with Nataliya's.

That's the copy paste bit, lol.

Any one want a sweetie?

This started off life as a plain old wooden box. A dark muddy brown. I gave it a lick of bright orange paint then rubbed metallic paste on all the edges and fittings. The bright coloured splodgy bit round the box is just glossy card with various alcohol inks dotted here and there and spread with the blending solution. Some old green and gold ribbon round the edges.
Someone will get a surprise.
Evil Jack has been coloured with promarkers before fussy cutting out and attached with a paper spring.
I knew before I started putting this together, getting a decent pic of Jack would be hard so scanned him first.
I hope you are enjoying seeing all these projects as much as I'm enjoying making them. I thank you for all your kind comments it makes it all so much more worth while.

If you're into Halloween and the creepier side of things be sure to follow the CREEPMAS hop which has all sorts of weird stuff including decor, stories and general insanity...its fun... see left hand side bar logo for link

 There's also a Smeared and Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas hop going on - The blog roll for that is also on my side bar.
I'd like to enter this into the challenge at
