Tombstone City Revisited....

I love making things for autumn and Halloween, and today I just needed a bit of fun….The *tombstones* have been cut by hand from white cardstock, and distressed with TH inks in pumice stone, weathered wood and forest green. The die cuts are from Sizzix, the owls stamps are from Hero Arts, and the foliage stamp is from LaBlanche. Added some numbers, a Prima flower, a skull, a text stamp *By the pricking of my thumbs….* and some hand doodling. The tags were great fun to make, and just something different. The small *graves* on 2 of the tags open up to reveal Halloween surprises….

  6. Ooooooo scary! I love them all, but the one with the witch's hat and feet and the skeleton whose head has fallen off is my fav! Those die-cuts are amazing.
