"Kissed by a Rose on a Grave" Coffin Box


"Day of the Dead" Tree Angel 

by LCDesigner Leigh

  I'm back today to share 2 projects so sit for a spell and enjoy the show ;0)

"Kissed by a Rose on a Grave" Coffin Box
The song "Kiss from a Rose" by Seal is one of my all time faves and inspired this piece which features the following stamps:
Lost Coast Designs:  Articulated Skeleton, Rose Bud and large Spiderwebs background
Carmen's Veranda: large Heads and Roses background stamp
 A closer look at all the details
 and now for my "3D DOTD Tree Angel" featuring Lost Coast Designs new release, the 5 inch Day of the Dead Angel!

3D Angel with fussy cut layering
 Here she is on top of my black Halloween tree.
I had a devil of a time trying to capture the glow of the tree lights through her so you'll just have to believe me when I say she glows prettily in the dark! 
 That's it from me today!  Have a SPOOKTACULAR HALLOWEEN and we'll see you back here tomorrow for Day 2 of our Day of the Dead Celebrations!  Join the fun and link up your DOTD projects in the linky below!

Wonderful work on the Trinket box and the Angel, full of vibrant colours!

Mary Holshouser said...

That coffin is beautiful. The roses with the
skeleton is creepy but wonderful. So much
detail. The DOD angel is beautiful too.
You can get a sense of the light in the last
thanks for sharing this month with us. It
has been so much fun seeing all of the
projects y'all come up with. Hope to see
you again at the 31DOH next year.
Happy Halloween

She is really cool. Love then layering. So..... Day of the Dead. Is that like halloween projects, or is there a subtle difference. Maybe a bias towards skeletons and zombies rather than pumpkins?? Hugz
