Do you already have the creeps for Halloween?
Well with this tutorial you will shiver and tremble with fear, AAAARRRRRGGGGHHH!!!
walnut stain - frayed burlap - antique linen.
Stazon timber brown, jet black.
Alcohol ink caramel and mushroom.
Viva decor inka gold, gold brown and gold.
Dark brown acrylic paint.
Small sponge, paint brush.
Glue and hot glue gun.
Water based markers (zig/tombo), dark brown, shades of beige, dark and light grey.
Sizzix sizzlits docorative strip die, Ironwork gate.
Fake cobweb and some embellishments.
I used the little rum bottle, a pirate sword, pumpkin, metal charm skull.
Moss, make sure it is dry.
Cut and score your cardboard like this photo.
Take the aluminium foil and wrinkle it.
Don't flatten it but keep it a little bumpy.
Glue it on the cardboard with a glue gun.
Paint it dark brown with acrylic paint.
And make sure it is dry.
charm needs a little sanding and gesso or any primer will do.
Let it dry thoroughly.
Colour the charm with the alcohol ink, until it looks rusty.
the goth shrine.
Now take the stamping tool, and the watercolor paper.
We proceed as follows,
- stamp with distress antique linen the entire stamp.
- repeat this with the frayed burlap, but now only some pieces of the stamp.
- And for the last step you take the dark brown marker and use it direct on the stamp.
But its only for the shadows, so I did it on the edges and corners of the stamp.
It is time
to color in the accents and details with the markers and the waterpencil.
I was going for a weathered wood look.
If you want a stone look then you can do it with grey tones.
Now its time to stamp the big skeleton parts.
The upper and lower arm pieces, each 1 time.
Both hands 2 time, so there are 4 hands.
And 2 skulls.
When you cut out the parts, leave a piece of extra paper.
This is necessary to glue them together.
Now comes the tricky part.
Assemble the skeleton so that it looks like he wants to steel the charm.
Glue all parts on.
Cut of the remaining pieces of paper.
Die cut the fence and color it with the distress ink as shown on the picture.
After all, they have been buried in the ground for a long time.
Now we are going to put it all together.
Fold the narrow side back and glue together.
Glue the headstone to the front.
I made a little cardboard support on the backside.
Glue the skull and hands on the grave.
Take pieces of the fence and glue them on the sides.
Glue on the moss and your embellishments.
Stamp the bird on bike with black stazon and cut of the crow.
Glue it on the tombstone.
With a black piece of paper you can make an eye patch for the skull.
And don't forget to join our challenge, we love to see your cards and projects.
And you can win a very nice prize.
