SDC66 – treat box coffin


I feel like it may take me a few tries before I feel like I hit my stride with the Stampotique challenges again.  While I’m pretty happy with this, I feel like I really need some new images to work with. LOL! Any excuse for a shop, I think.

I missed the combining-stamps challenge. although that seems to be something I d fairly often, like here.  I took one of the skeletons from the Halloween cube and replace BatBoy’s head.  I also used just the WELCOME plaque from the door stamp.  The coffin lid is a bit of card embossed with a folder with the high points brayer in Walnut stain and the fill-in with Vintage photo.  Of course I had 100 other ideas that I thought of aver I finished it. but I have so much going on at the moment I and leaving it as is.

The coffin is a template from Martha, here. (link corrected)

It’s hard to see but the wings are embossed with some glittery black embossing powder then smudged with Black soot.  I like the effect.

He looks appropriately spooky, I think!

One last angle….
