Tombstone Swap

Over at Retro Cafe ARt there is a fang-tastic Tombstone Swap going on. You really must check it out. It looks like some scary fun. As you know, Halloween is my favorite holiday because it's the day I met my dear husband! Also it's right around my birthday so, it's always a special time.

To make these, I started  by using the Retro Cafe Art Gothic tombstones as my base and painted them white, grey and black. I stamped each one with  a background image, one a funeral wreath and the other cemetery gates. The boo-tiful images are from RCA Haunted Mask Marie by  Cassandra Van Curen that were printed on a clear transparency sheet. The  Retro Cafe Art 3D cut out embellishments include skulls, bats , cat masquerade mask and skeleton key. My sparkly accents include Red and Silver Stickles. All the text is hand cut. The Bingo marker with "31" is from RCA collage sheet called Happy Hallow 3. All to celebrate this special day.

Hope my swap turns out to be hauntingly fun!
take care, gerri
