31 DOH - Day 2 and Haunted Design House Challenge #177

Well hello and welcome back to Day 2 of 31 Days of Halloween, held by Smeared Ink.
You should have just left Roni and are now at Shoni aka Crafty Inknik's Blog.
The Wicked Blogger list is to the left under my info. 
Up next is Jenn.
I will be entering this little jar of sweets to the Haunted Design House challenge blog as well.  
"You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Hallowe'en 
based art piece that is dimensional in some way.  
Now foam pop dots are fine, but we are really hoping
to see you guys come up with some real dimension."
My husband hates Peeps.  So now that you can pretty much find them year round, I find every way possible to buy them.
This canning jar fits 3 Ghost Peeps in perfectly.
Lots of dimension and layers.  And in the second picture you can even see some of the Dimensional pop dots, "which are fine".  heheeee.

Sugary Deets
Circle and Scallop punches used for lid topper with three different DP's.
Ribbon is Stampin' Up! (retired).
Saying is from Scaredy Cat stamp set, Stampin' Up! (retired), and is stamped in Basic Black ink.
Brad is Silver 3/8" Glimmer Brad, SU! (current)
Washi Tape, skellie, and spider are from stash.
Rub on strip over washi on bottom of jar.
I did use a black Sharpie on skellie and eyes do have Crystal Effects on them.

CIP - Crafty Inknik Prize!!
 Don't forget to post today for the prize that was offered yesterday.
Sorry, if you did not comment AND leave your favorite Halloween movie yesterday you are out of the running for the candle.  But don't worry, I'll be offering more later.
