Gothic Tombstone DOTD Fun!

Just a quick post to lead you through a really, really fun little project for

If you follow them or me, you know we love to decorate Tombstones each 
year, and sometimes have a swap. 

Each year they're cut out just a little bit differently. So here's one from 
this years design 
Gothic Tombstone ATC Bases VI.


I started with some bright Metallique colors from Finnabair - Coral Reef, 
Crocus Fields, and Lime Peel - and a Worn Screen stencil. 

When the paint is dry, add some white pen marks.


The Spider and Glasses are painted with more Metalliques. 
The Bat Wings I used were out of Black Chipboard. 
The ones shown here are Masonite. 
It's your choice when ordering.


I used the Black and White Sugar Skull Cut Outs and added lots of
color with Tombow Markers.


The Dia De Los Muertos Cats are really stunning and can be ordered on
Masonite as well.


 The Halloween Word Scroll and Arrows are decorated with
 Metalliques and Pens.  

It's all layered up and glued in place with 3D Heavy Body Gel.

These are ATC size, that is a really fun and easy size to work with, and
can be traded, or put into a stand that lets you put them on a shelf.

So get ordering and get busy. Time is wasting!

Your Friend in ART,
Linda
