Day 15 31 Days of Halloween~Tombstones

Welcome to Day 15 of the 31 Days of Halloween! This is an annual Smeared Ink event and we are so thrilled to be playing along as Wicked Bloggers. The Wicked Blogger challenge is to post a new creation each day during October that contains a stamped image, digi or rubber! Check out all the rules and prize details at Smeared Ink.

There is a fabulous blog roll to follow and Hop to it! Find it on the side bar :)

I am thinking there are some wicked things from CT Anne today.....

ATCs,  shaped as tombstones, cut from mat board.  The left one was painted black, then both were coated with sand texture paste, and when dry, washed with interference paints and Lindy Stamp Gang moonshadows.

I drizzled a thick frame around the round face with Liquid Pearls, colour onyx pearl.  While it was still wet, lightly teased and pressed into it, some "spiderweb", then added a portion of Ancient text border stamp below.
Lost Coast Designs stamp catalogue to the rescue for both ATCs: a Mini Ancient was stamped on a Graphics 45 "Rare Oddities" paper - placed so she had feet!  She's domino-sized too.  One of the "3 small doll faces" was also stamped on the same paper for the lighter ATC.  The teeth are from a set sized to be placed over a kid's own teeth.  A supermarket chain is having a Disney dominoes promotion right now.  My daughter wants very specific dominoes, I want all her daughters' leftovers as my DH does the grocery shopping at a different chain!
The legs fitting between the teeth dictated the final placing of the domino.  A strip of fluffy yarn below the teeth, and flowersoft(!!!) round the sides of the domino hide and texturize the whiteness. 

All the stamps came from
I hope if I'm not cremated and ashes dispersed in the wind, that my grave will be this colourful!!!
