The lg Cemetery Gate CM-253-U, Bare Branches Set CM-BBR-X stamps, and small Wolf Moon CM-010-D stamp created by Third Coast's talented artist Cindy Milliron were perfect for this project. The carriage hearse is cut from a piece of design paper by Moxxie called "Dead on Arrival," part of their Midnight Dreary series.
Below is a close up of the Cemetery Gate and all of it's fabulous details.
I started by stamping the Cemetery Gate with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossing with clear detail embossing powder. Then I colored the image with Copic markers and fussy cut it out using a craft knife for the detail work. The carriage hearse is a section of design paper glued down. Then the bare branches and moon were stamped also in Versafine black and clear heat embossed. The moon was colored with Copics. Then I sponged the sky background and slightly onto the design paper with Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs and last added a touch of Mustard Seed especially for the halo around the moon. Next I glued the gate in place, and last of all added a finishing touch by highlighting the moon's reflection with a Ranger white gel pen. This was a fun project to make.
Halloween is getting close - only a week from today. Have a great last week in October and thanks for stopping by.
