Created Byhand Challenge-Coffins


Creepy Old Guy

We were given a coffin template today on Created Byhand Challenge to make an ATC. I purchased this stamp from a bargain bin not knowing how creepy he looked until I inked it. I did not think I would ever use it but then decided he would be perfect for Halloween. He is stamped on white paper, cut out, and then given the ghostly look by using a vellum overlay. The border is inked cheesecloth and 3 colors of TH distressed embossing powders.
