This little She Devil gets my votive ;)

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 😦

    Wow Lisa, this is a wonderful Halloween project and I love your She Devil Lantern. There’s so much detail to enjoy – the treatment of the ‘eyes’ and your lovely She Devil herself as a day-time Halloween decoration. Then come darkness and time to light you lantern and I gasped in awe – spectacular and so beautiful. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)

    First glad to here you are doing well with all the storms going on around you.
    Your little She Devil Lantern is so cute. I too, like to make things using stuff that I have in my stash, and once I get started I don’t want to stop and go to the store so improvising is what I do. (lol) 😀 Thanks so much for joining us at OSAAT.
