More Halloween and the Dreamer!

How are you doing today and is it starting to cool down where you are? We are still quite hot, but I would say that Summer is coming to an end! Now we will be getting ready for the Autumn and you know that means Halloween for some and lots of spooky fun!
This altered coffin box I created during the AO's Halloween Blog Hop and promised to share a little later, so here it is!
The first thing I did was to stamp the "Lady Skeleton" frame from Gothic 31 on the box using VersaMark and clear embossed. The we had some fun with Distress Stains and Rock Candy Crackle, but only up to the frame. 
I stamped a second "Lady" after Distress Inking and clear embossed (added a stickle eye), then inked over the colors with Black Soot. Then added several layers of clear embossing powder and popped it in the center. Edged with some Treasure Gold - do love that stuff!
The insides were covered with Tim's Halloween Kraft paper, Inked and stamped.
But I'm not the only one! Yes, I have been singing that song and I bet you are also? I am loving the new releases from Artistic Outpost and I can't wait to see what those of you who have picked up these stamps, come up with!
Since I am sharing this over at Artistic Outpost today, for all the details about this canvas and more pictures, pop on over. This is also the start of a new month and a new "Monthly Referral Program" and as again it is anything goes, but use those AO stamps!

Thank you for stopping by today! In a couple of days I will be off to visit Portland, OR and my family. Will share that with you upon my return! Enjoy the rest of the week!

Stamps: Artistic Outpost Gothic 31, Chalk It Up, Chalkboard Wisdom
Inks: VersaMark, Distress Black Soot, Spiced Marmalade, Dusty Concord, Peeped Paint, Shabby Shutters, Archival Black
Stains: Dusty Concord, Rusty Hinge, Black Soot, Peeled Paint
Treasure Gold

Fabby Halloween colours Terry, dare I say she looks quite pretty rather than spooky and ghoulish. All the techniques are amazing.

She is very sinister to say the least but what a great altered box, amazing colours Terry.
Of course we are all singing this song!
I received this set recently to play with along with (maybe it is my all time favourite) Paris Exposition. Lovely stamps.

Such a fabulous box to hold those ghoulish treats. Love the colours and crackle and the framed stamp is now one of my favourite Halloween stamps.
