DAY #5 of 31 DAYS OF HALLOWEEN and TUESDAY TAGGERS.

It's DAY #5 for us wicked blogs and its Tuesday so its TUESDAY TAGGERS..... the new challenge has been picked by Georgina my teamie..... and its to create/decorate a BOX and something HANDMADE in it.
I couldnt pass up this oppitunity to use one of these wonderful coffins.
I painted it black...what else?
Stamped and embossed the skull from DIMENTION FORTH and the used silver/green sukura pen to go around my embossing. I embossed in silver around the top and bottom edge, and stamped and embossed a grungy border along the top and bottom opening edges.... i painted inside black also. When it was dry i used 2 coats of satin vanish. Now inside.....? I have used scrunched up tissue paper.... just as padding/protection.... it can be remove.

Inside is a choker i made.... using black waxed cord, square black beads, larger square siver coloured beads with a cross on them....

....a couple of crosses very similar to the ones on the beads and in the centre is a skeleton torso on a black cross..... all very goth..... now do i wear it or do i sell it?
Please come and join in with us TAGGERS this week..... you dont have to do a coffin..... although i'd be chuffed to bits if you did!



31 dayers..... the list of WICKED BLOGS is on my side bar..... have fun and i hope you are inspired!.... if not by me but everyone else on the list.
Another halloween creation tomorrow..... thanks for visiting love lynx

The skull is awesome ( I have one of those for you here didn't know whether you'd seen them!) and inspirationally embellished with pictures of EAPoe. Love the coffin and the necklace you've made to go in it, and the rose box. Those leaves look like metal. The clock - Wow!!! How I'd love to come play at yours
