Remeber that I said that my niece was going to a Halloween party this weekend. Well - she managed to find an outfit, but I wanted to make something for her to bring (to the two other young ladies that are having the party). I ended up making 2 boxes filled with candy such as worms, frogs, fake teeth, sculls etc.

The only problem I had was that I did not have any Halloween stamps - since I am not really in to the whole Halloween thing (it is not big here in Sweden, but might be soon - just looking at all the things they have in the shops now). So I had to draw something fast myself.
Here's the result - one with a Pumpkin on legs with a dew drop for nose and the witch hat, the other one with a pumpkin and a teenage witch with a spider necklace. I found the spiders in my grocery shop and added them with a dimensional. Cardstock and DPs from SU. Everything coloured with SU markers and aquarelle brush. Highlights with stickles and white gel pen. Boo written in a "spooky way" with gunmetal stickles.
I also wanted to make some candy that was really scary - so I made some fingers for her. They are made out of marzipan, the nail is a non-stop (chocolate candy here in Sweden) and the blood is just caramel colour. I think they really look scary - don't you? However - they taste very nice ;-)
The pics of the boxes looks a little orange - but that's because it's really, really dark outside here now. It's pitch black..
Natti, natti

Askarna var fina. Om de som ska få dem är rädd för spindlar så japp, då blir dt nog lite läskigt.. Jag skulle dö om jag fick en av de där askarna, jag hatar spindlar. Speciellt om de är lite större - och levande :O

Fingrarna, ush. De såg äkta ut.
