Hello friends

I'm back with another spooky Halloween make....
I took a vignette box and covered it using Halloween papers by Tim Holtz and distress it.
I lined the inside with the wallpaper.
I also added melted wax from a red candle to add another layer of spookiness!
I broke the fingers off the zombie hands by accident, (because I actually stood on them both!!) but like in my previous post I decided to make use of those fingers by making them look like they were coming out of the box

I was trying to suspend the skulls with thread so they would moved with the box but wasn't having a lot of luck, so I  drilled through the skulls using a Dremel drill,,,(thank you to the lovely Stacy for giving me the inspiration to try this!) it finally did the job!

I then set about adding lots of the Idea-ology goodies to decorate the box....
I also wanted to used the damaged zombie hand elsewhere so I added it inside 
corked dome... my dome had slightly cracked at the top so I carefully removed the glass using my Tim Holtz scissors, so it looks like it that hand is poking out...
I added more candle wax to finish!

Hop over to Tim's blog to see more spooky inspiration here 
thanks so much for popping by

Something Wicked

Hello friends!

I hope you are all good!
I know its been a while since I blogged...but I'm super excited to share this 'Haunted'
Tombstone to get you in the mood for Halloween next month 

I started with an Etcetera Tombstone tag, then layered it with papers from Tim Holtz and painted it with distress paints and vintage collage medium. 
I then distressed a cabinet card from Idea-ology, painted up the found relative
and gave her a makeover....(the witches hat is from one of the witch photo's) 
I then set about adding lots of Halloween Idea-ology...
The fingers on the broom are from the Zombie hands...I snapped them off as I wanted them to look like they were coming out of the cabinet card. 
I coloured some of the mummy cloth using distress inks , de-threaded it a little and hung it over the top of the tombstone. To finish I added skull and bones and splashed of red distress paint! 
more skulls and pumpkins were added along with an old key from my vintage stash!

I really hope you like this Halloween tombstone, please feel free to leave a comment, I appreciate you passing by.
All of the Halloween Idea-ology is available now, if you are in the UK, Art from the Heart are stocking it get it before it goes!

Have yourselves a lovely week!
I'll be back soon with another spooky make
