Skeletons in your closet can be fun!
Painted the box with white gesso. Overstamped with black Versafine Ink using skulls background stamp. Stamped spider webs with black and embossed with clear.
Stamped skull with Versafine. Stamped it again on vellum- overlayed it and coated with Glossy Accents. Removed some of the Glossy Accents as it was drying to give dimension to the eye, nose and mouth.
Dirtied up the whole thing with Ranger Distress inks applied with a sponge.
All the stamps are from After Midnight.
Images are cut out, colored and glued into box with hotglue.
Better view of our characters. The clock in the background is a packing tape transfer on a mini domino coated with Glossy Accents. The spider web in the corner is stamped on vellum and glued in place. The bar is two cardboard dominoes with puff paint and reinker brayer on, glued together and stuck in place with black hotglue. The booze bottles and shotglasses are plastic tubing, cut down and colored with alcohol inks.
The bluebird of happiness flying over their heads is a turquiose bead. (Thanks, Wendy.)
The laughing bartender is glued to a thin plastic stick, so when you open the door or bump the box, she jiggles with a "bobble head" effect. Looks like she is laughing really hard.
Inside of doors have small angel stamps from The Artful Lexicon to keep the skeltons safe from harm.
The butterfly is done on shrink plastic, colored with chalk pastels.
The rusted elements are Crayola Model Magic coated with instant rust.
The detail on left is a clipart transfer done with Clear Opals EP.
They sure make a sweet couple, don't they. :)
