At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Halloween.We have the fabulous Just Some Lines as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I got the idea to make this here,just changing it up a little to suit my crafting supplies and my own ideas 🙂 This sweet Halloween She Devil is by Just Some Lines and has been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.From the back of my cupboard I dug out this jar that somehow seemed to have lost it’s lid!Knew it would come in handy one day 🙂 I discovered this paper in my local craft warehouse and then inspiration struck!So using my Japanese screw punch,using a variety of  tips, made holes in the eyeballs and circles on the paper.Next I added the punched strip at the bottom and the thinner piece around the top edge of the paper is actually  the leftover from that.The web ribbon around the top was trimmed to fit.Being white originally I took a Black Copic Ciao and using the chisel end transformed it into a more creepy looking dark web.I could only find my finer craft wire so the handle is more decorative than functional.It’s just one length wrapped around and twisted in place.The beads,saved from an unwanted brooch,came in handy to cover the ends of the wire.As you can see I’ve done a fair bit of recycling,upcycling,being cheap….LOL….whatever you want to call it!!Sometimes it’s just nice to take a load of junk you have hanging around, get creative with it without having to dash to the shops and buy anything special….but of course it’s nice to do that too 😉

Here she is all lit up :

Considering I had no idea how this was going to turn out I’m pretty pleased with the effect.You’ll have to ‘scuse the photo a bit,my camera automatically went into nighttime mode.

Mind you I wouldn’t want to put it outside today as in the UK there have been severe storm warnings issued.It’s been a pretty wild,wet and windy night/morning here but I think we have got off fairly light compared to some parts of the country.Others,sadly have not been so fortunate 😦

This is the last week of the Happy Boo To You challenge at Just Some Lines.Wow!Can’t  believe that’s another month over!To play along you need to use a Just Some Lines image to enter and you could win a fantastic digi stamp if you’re picked as part of the Top 3!

So,I made a cute little house for this little fella to reside in 🙂 He’s called Voodoo Doll by Just Some Lines and he’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.I coated his button eyes and the watch face with 3D Crystal Lacquer.After researching on the ‘net I found that they aren’t always used for bad things as they lead us to believe in films and on the telly.Some other info showed that they can come in different colours or the pins can be coloured too to mean a variety of things.I went with coloured pins.His home is actually a template for a sweet Gingerbread house that I found in Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine so adapted it to accommodate some Halloween  sweets.The sides have been embossed with a folder and the roof has been scored for a tiled effect.I also trimmed the edges with deckle decorative edge scissors.An inverted scallop die has been used to frame the aperture and some punched fencing has been used to surround his property.
