Haunted Design House are BACK

Yes, the dungeon caretakers at Haunted Design House are back after a seasonal break. What better challenge than a 
Freaker's Free For All 
for you all to get your creep on.?

The format has undergone a slight change in the break. We now run the challenges for TWO weeks. This will hopefully allow for more "drying time" of your projects. I know I've taken pics in the past of projects before the glue's set or the paint's still wet - just to catch a deadline. We will be still posting weekly on the blog - just to show you what we made.
I made a pair of earrings. I used a couple of rugby ball shaped brads as my base. Feet cut off and sanded until smooth. A couple of little raven cabochon in my stash that have been sitting waiting for a home. Filled the empty space with black gems.
The box was hand made - needed to be a certain size to  take the top.
A piece of copper that was embossed using a stamped image from the Smeared Ink, Quoth the Raven set. This is the link to the digi set. I am lucky enough to own the original rubber :D
I heated the copper before adding to the box and then sanded a bit.
Papers from my scrap box covered the box framework and velvet ribbon to cover the sharp edges of the copper on the lid.

Come on into the dungeon and show us your wares. Will a little "Please" work?

I am entering this project into the challenge over at
