Trick or Treat...

For this months challenge...
  "Halloween / Autumn"
I chose 'Lollipop jar' from Patties Creations.
Thought I would use this everyday image a little bit differently! 

So.. I started with the basic lollipop jar - I made the card shape by printing off the jar
and using it as a template to draw around on my card.
 I doodled some eyes on each of the lollipops. 
(I tried to vary the eyes as much as i could. )
I coloured the lollipops with my alcohol pens
 in traditional halloweeny colours: orange, green and purple 
and used all my 5 shades of greys (promarkers) to colour the lid
I found some bakers twine, to which I threaded on a little tag, 
which I die-cut and lettered myself. 
I also drew some simple little bats, and coloured them black (obviously!) 
and 3d foamed them to the 'lid' of the card.

I'm quite pleased with this card, and think I will send it
to my little nephew, for Halloween. 

***Pattie also has a "candy corn jar" in her digi shop... 
I chose not to use that image, as in England, we don't have candy corn...
Infact, I'm not really sure what its like..never had it!***
