Halloween's rustification

Hi everyone,

As you know I'm in Halloween mode, and the challenge of this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show fits that perfectly. The challenge is called Rustification. What did you just say??? Yes, Rustification ... May Flaum (our DT leader) has made up the word and you can interpret it as you wish. Sush as makeing something look rusty, or use some rust colors. What ever you want to do, let your imagination run free. I chose to make something rusty looking. In this case a rusty fence. I've done that ​​with a Andy Skinner Time Worn Technique. I'm so loving his amazing techniques!

The tombstone I've made using the Dylusions Perfect Splatter Technique that my dear friend Anita Houston shows here in a great video. I chose Black Marble Dylusions and Pewter Perfect Pearls to create a black marble effect. The letters I've cut out of vinyl with my Silhouette Cameo. Unfortunately I did not come up with the text/name for it, but found it on the internet somewhere. When I saw it I knew immediately that I wanted to use it! It's too funny, right?

To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

That Andy Skinner is a genius and you have really used his technique to great effect. The tombstone looks even better with the fence in front, and I love the words on the stone. Made me smile:) Hugs, Buttons x
