...ghosts, bats, blood, rats, tombstones, skeletons, haunted houses, and creepy trees. Thanks to Tim's new holiday dies, Sizzix dies, Martha Stewart gravestone punch, shrink plastic and grunge paper I was able to come up with a suitable entry for this week's theme over on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Blog.
I punched out 6 gravestones from scrap cardstock, glued them together, then sprayed it with a stone Krylon spray. Included with the punch was 3 stamps so I chose 'RIP', stamped it using black archival ink. A bit of distressing ink around the edges creepens it up.
You know all those little bits that fall out of the die from the fence? Blacken the edges and they make the perfect size of layering pieces behind the fence and tree. The whole piece is over 1/2" from front to back.
Isn't that mouse something? He's from the dollar spot at Target; I just used a red Sharpie on his eyes. Thanks to a friend's fantastic yard sale find, I had plenty of scrabble tiles to create the message. And what do you think of the bloodied hand? Found it at Dollar General and it's very accurate, even down to the pores on the top of the hand. I also got the foot - same accuracy to details. Not sure when/where I'll use it but didn't want to pass up the opportunity to add it to my Halloween stash.
Halloween is but a few days away...trick or treat, smell my feet...give me something good to eat!
