I went about painting the interior of my dollar store coffin in the same way as the last two. This time I wanted to jazz the exterior up just a little and give it a little Halloween creepiness. I know, it's not even CLOSE to the big day, but I just had to give my new Distress paints, Memory Box skeleton hand die and some of my flowers my sweet, talented friend Samra gifted me for my birthday a try!
Dies: Memory Box Skeleton Hand, Sizzix Spring Greenery; Stencil: Tim Holtz Gothic; Inks, Paints, Stains: Distress ink, Peeled Paint, Broken China, Ground Expresso; Distress paint, Antique Linen, Ground Expresso, Vintage Photo, Wilted Violet; Black and white Gesso; Distress stain spray, Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron Other: Golden Crackle texture paste, chipboard coffin, wonderful handmade flowers from Samra--white (I painted them in my crazy colors.)
Look how the Wilted violet turns a blue shade when in different light! Still just using my Ott light and regular incandescent light to photograph in. No black lights, special lighting or camera filters used.
Here's what the unaltered coffin and ribbon looked like.
A special thank you to Samra (Paper Talk With Samra) for the beautiful blossoms that inspired the top of my casket. And she made me a beautiful card!
I would like to enter my casket into the following inspiring challenges:
Emerald Creek Dares We Are on Our Way New Adventure I'm using my new skeleton hand die, my new Halloween Distress colors and my new gift from my friend. Also new alcohol splatter technique, but I've used it 3 times already for this challenge.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Simon Says: Ombre I used the ombre technique on my stenciling and on my ribbon, although it's hard to see the color transition on that.
