As if you couldn't guess. Everyone, it seems is gearing up for All Hallow's Eve. Seems like I'll be having my own little party. Me, myself and I, and any others that turn up. Hubby's away for a few days. This corner of Scotland doesn't "do Halloween". Even the pumpkins here are smaller than a witch's cats head!! I still indulge myself though and make a few things. One of which is this little coffin.......
I started off by stamping a Lost Coast "skull with wreath" stamp a few times on some purple paper. My intention was that the wreath from one image would be shared with the one above. It grew and the next layer shares jaws..... as you can see - "a bit" of masking was going on here.
This went on to cover the top of a prepainted coffin (purple acrylic paint).
Round the bottom, I used a digi from Smeared Ink "It's about Time" which I had printed on the same purple paper.
Inside there is a computer generated motto in the lid and a zombieboy digi from Make It Crafty.
The boy was stuck in using a paper spring and surrounded by little scrunched up red tissue paper that I had inked to make it look old and dirty.
A couple of rounds of black ribbon to finish it all of
I am entering this into the Tuesday Taggers challenge this week for their Purple Challenge who are being sponsered this week by the Craft Barn and into the Haunted Design House challenge #62 - Smeared and Smudged - the amount of inking going on here inside and out :). Also going to enter it into the Sweet Stamping challenge for Anything but a card.
