Toil and Trouble

Something Wicked This Way Comes! Nah…. just working on a spooky scene for my mantle. This tombstone was inspired by the makers for Tim Holtz 2021 Sizzix Halloween collection. Most of the Sizzix dies are sold out. So, as always, Cricut to my rescue. All the images (clouds, bats, cat, witch, cauldron, fence, gravestone) were cut from Cricut access. The tombstone was cut out of 3 layers of chip board. Everything else is 80 lb. cardstock. Oh the layers we will add to this little tombstone:

  • Acrylic paint: Grey and Black
  • Distressed Oxide paint: Brushed Pewter
  • Distress Texture Paste: Grit-matte, Grit Crypt, Grave

The clouds had some inking with Distress Oxide Ink in Black Soot and Old Paper. The fence was embossed with an embossing daber and Distressed Oxide Walnut Stain Glaze and Emerald Creek’s Rocky Road Baked Texture by Seth Apter. My spider webs (Stampers Anonymous) were embossed on clear acetate with Sticky embossing powder and Rock Candy glitter added. The bubbling cauldron are green beads glued with Apple Sour Glows in the Dark Nuvo Drops.
