Tombstone Time!

No, not the movie, although, I do love that movie! It's a good one! Just sayin'. Retro Cafe Art Gallery hosted a super fun Halloween Tombstone swap and was MORE than excited to participate!  We each created four tombstones and sent them in for swapping!  I haven't received the return swap yet, as the due date was only Saturday, but I wanted to share the four tombstones that I created with you today!  These were SO stinking much fun to create!

I started with the Masonite Gothic Tombstone ATC Bases.  I covered each one with a different embossing enamel from Stampendous!  I love how the backgrounds look covered with the embossing enamel!

White Owl ATC

For this White Owl Tombstone ATC I covered the background with Stardust Embossing Enamel.  I love how it glitters behind the white owl!  The owl is from the Owl Paper Cuts collection.  I also embossed cross from the Cross Cut Outs in Masonite with Aged Gold Embossing Enamel.  I added a few gem stones and a bit of May Arts Burlap string to finish it off.

Skull & Crossbones ATC

For this one I covered the background with a HEAVY coat of the Aged Black Embossing Enamel. I used the masonite skull and crossbones cut-out and the Spider Web cut-outs, both covered with the Aged Silver enamel.

Brown Owl Tombstone ATC

For this Brown Owl ATC I used the owl cut-outs, once again and combined it with a patchy layer of Aged Black Embossing Enamel. This allowed some masonite to show through and gave it a lot of texture.

Moth Tombstone ATC

And this is the last of the four. I used the Moth Paper Cuts for this one and the background is covered with Aged Gold Embossing Enamel. Again, I used a spotty application for this one to create more texture.

So...there are my four Halloween Tombstone ATC's. I kinda LOVE how they turned out. Just sayin'. LOL! I hope you enjoy them! I'd love to hear your comments! It seems when I share non-card projects you get quiet out there! *wink*wink*
