Hello there! Hope you are all having a fabulous week so far.
We are starting a new challenge over at Emerald Creek Dares blog today - please share with all your friends that there is a new challenge on the block and we would love for you to all come and take part in our challenges! You could a $25 gift certificate to the Emerald Creek Store. The theme is Halloween!
Are you all getting ready for Halloween? I have to admit I am not one for Halloween, but I did love making this latest project.
Ok, it's not just the skeleton LOL! - This is Funny Bones and you can get him as a stamp at Emerald Creek.
After stamping him up and to get him to hang like that, I cut him up and then used 4mm jump rings, jewelry thingy's, to join him back up again :-)
I decided to make a Halloween wall hanging, for a friend (who celebrates Halloween big style) and came up with this. It is a 12" by 12" canvas used the wrong way around :-)
The coffin was first stained with a walnut stain and then I added some Black Soot Distress Paint around the edges and also scraped over the bats. The bats were made using Ranger Texture Paste and a Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stencil called Batground :-) I couldn't resist cutting up another Funny Bones to stick out of the side of the coffin LOL! The Aztec Skull from Emerald Creek - was coloured up with Ranger Adirondack Alcohol Inks in Sunset Orange and Purple Twilight, I did snip off the little link from the top of the charm.
Some of his friends wanted to join the party too, after I had stamped them up - that is what Funny Bones looks like before I cut him up LOL! And hence the sentiment Hanging with Funny Bones, this was typed up in Word using a font on my computer called Chiller :-)
The trees, fences, bats, grave stones are all from the Polkadoodles Witchie Witchie 2013 Bundle. I traced them using my Silhouette Cameo and cut them out in black card stock, adding a little orange behind the owl for the eyes :-) I added some Picket Fence Distress Paint to the black pieces to give it that smoky spooky feel :-)
The flying witch is part of an SVG cut file from Miss Kate Cuttables. The spiders webs are also from Miss Kates Cuttables. For the moon, I just cut a circle in cream card and inked it over with Ranger Distress Ink pad in Vintage Photo.
And there you have it my Spooky Halloween Hanging with Bones creation :-)
And whilst we are in the mood - here's a little sneak peek of something I made and will be on my blog on Saturday - so remember to come back LOL!
