Trick or Treat! DMW #4

Wow...  our 4th challenge at Digi My World already! Before I get to my creation and to the challenge, drop on by the Digi My World Blog, and become a follower.... you don't want to miss out on our freebies!  This week, we have some free halloween images available to use at ... go grab them before they are all eaten!

Do check out the fabulous Halloween and Autumn themed newly released images ... they are awesome! My creation this week uses the Wendy image...

Ingredients: Hinged Box; Black Acrylic paint; Stardust Glitter Pens, Le Plume Markers; Vintage Lace; Adhesive Pearls; Large Adhesive Black Rhinestones; Ice Stickles; Pearl Glimmer Mist...

I took a sweet hexagonal hinged box and painted it with black acrylic paint.  (Note to self: I need to paint more 3D projects... painting is fun!).  Then I added a good spritz of Pearl Glimmer Mist.  It doesn't show very well here, but the lid has a spooky uneven layer of pearl shimmer, like smokey clouds.

I printed the image, coloured it with Glitter Pens and markers, and trimmed it out.  I adhered the image to the lid, and started trimming.... I first added lace, them rows of back rhinestones, and finished with patterns of pearls in cream and white. (Okay, admission time... I didn't have enough of the tiny white pearls, so I added the larger cream pearls in between to stretch round the lid!)  Not large enough for dispensing Halloween Treats, but perhaps for hiding some special ones! Or if you want a trick, perhaps you could store your glass eye in it....eeew!

OUR CHALLENGE: runs October 12 to October 25.... and our theme is TRICK OR TREATS! You can enter as many creations as you like.... the more you enter, the more chances to win our fab prize of $8 store credit!  Any DMW image is allowed - and TRICK or TREAT theme doesn't have to be Halloween-ish ... you MUST use a DMW image.... not a problem, because you can use the freebies!

Thanks for peepin'!
