Halloween is Hoppin at Tiddly Inks--blog hop

Well I can't believe I have made it for the hop over at Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog. You can click on over to see all of the rules for the hop...... My creation for the hop is a card/box. The top part is the card and then there's a drawer that pulls out to hide some goodies inside.I used quite a few digitals on this, so I'll list those at the bottom with links to them over in the store........ENJOY!!!!!
you can click on photos to make them larger
This is the front of the card/box. I stamped/printed all images onto water color paper and colored them in using distress inks and added stickles....I resized the house to fit an 8.4 11 size sheet of water color paper and printed it off....the tree was printed oversized to match the house.....the finished size is 7 3/4" square.....since this was so big I had to use grunge paper and brads as a closure for the card...the border around the roofs was made using Martha Stewart ice cycle border punch then heat embossed weathered wood distress embossing powder to make them look like they were metal and then just scrunched up the border to give them dimension. A little tab on the lower right corner to be able to open the card....there's a skull at the top but he got sorta dark with the black stickles.... here's a closer shot of the witch...isn't she soo ca-hute? ......I also have beaded chains draped down from the webs and the witch....
Here's the inside of the card...and yep--you guessed it---lol---another scene...but this one is the inside of the house...and look at how adorable these two bats and that little candy avenger is.....I used web embossing plate from Quick Kutz....the couch-table-candles-books-telephone are from Starving Artist Doodle Factory collection...ghost is from Studio G
I thought this could portray the little trick or treater bursting through the door to find the happy bats hangin out in their livingroom....lol...I know--how in the heck do I think of these things...lol...she's a cutie...and I've added an embossed web behind her and she is popped up using a black pipe cleaner...(that's a whole nother story--the pipe cleaners...lol)..I also left this mostly opened for a greeting/whatever....birthday, Halloween box...what about someone that has a Halloween Birthday...
.
and here's the living room side of the card....I used allot of stickles here to.
this is the pipe cleaners behind the bats.....this sane thing is behind the little avenger....
this is the front of the box....I kept it simple...I used the ice cycle punch again to go all the way around the box, added ball and chain around...then added an embossed web with grunge board as a drawer opened.....here you can see that I bowed out the bottom border of the front card...I have really taken a liking to this little dimensional thing,....lol...
This is the side view of the box.....ohh I also have wooden candle thingies that I painted with dusty concord distress ink....which that seemed to be the theme of this whole project.....
And here's the drawer open with the card closed on top....
..........................................................................................
