Something Wicked This Way Comes!

Hello!  Sherry here with a Halloween project for you today.  I started with the Halloween Wicked Collection and some Spellbinders Die Templates.  You can find all the Quietfire Halloween items located in one convenient location here!

I had this idea for a shrine, but also wanted to make my own in the process.  Using Spellbinders Grand Labels Eleven and some thin chipboard, this is what I came up with.


There are many, many layers of chipboard layered on top of one another because I wanted to create an offset from the back panel.  Once I had the panels die cut, they were trimmed at the base to be straight.  The branches from Spellbinders S4-378 Cherry Blossoms were die cut from chipboard, painted with acrylic paint, and then layered from the back panel.


The sentiment from the Halloween Wicked Collection was embossed with Sparkle Black embossing powder, then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders S5-019 Labels Eight.

Now here’s my favorite part . . . the tombstones!  They were die cut from chipboard with Spellbinders S4-330 Nested Tombstones, painted with acrylic paint and assembled by layering the different sizes on top of one another.


Mr. Bones is hanging with his friends Ima Goner, Barry A. Live and Izzy Dead!  Some white silk flowers from my stash were spritzed with Spiced Marmalade and Black Soot, and then covered with Black Soot Distress Stickles.  The fence was die cut/embossed with the border from Spellbinders S5-042 Fleur de Lis Doily Accents.  Once labels were put on the little bottles, there were covered with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint.  Love the cracked finish!

That’s all for me today . . . Thanks for stopping by!

Sherry - this is just wonderful! I love it all, right down to Mr. Bones feet sticking over the fence! The Tombstones layered like that are fabulous. Way to go!
