Gothic Tombstone ATC Swap!!!

Retro Cafe Art  is at it again!
Another WONDERFUL and FUN Swap is going on.
Check it out here.
 I started making some for myself, and for some for the swap as well.
These little guys are just plain addictive!
This one is my fav with the Spider...he started out Silver with a light purple body, but with some Alcohol Inks and a brush, he became this gorgeous Gold and Rich Purple guy.
Purple clock stickers from Graphic 45 Happy Haunting collection.
This had Graphic 45 papers but the super Skeleton is from RCAG here and the Cameo Frame is here.
The background stamps and Skull (1st Tombstone) are from Tim Holtz's Mini Halloween 3 set.

Background paints from PaperArtsy and Fresco are perfect on the Masonite Tombstones.
Here you see black chipboard Bats, Small Gothic Windows, and Ornate Circle Frames adorn this little guy. The Smiling Moon is from Graphic 45.
You'll love the Halloween Collage Word Cutouts for so many things!

The background stamp here is the Raven. Sticker is again from G45 Happy Haunting.
The Skeleton paper is from the Steampunk Spells paper pad.
LOVE the Bats and Spiders. Kristin has TONS of them in the shop!
So give it a go, place your order and join the Swap!
You won't be sorry!

Be scared, be very scared! I love them all. so exactly what are the rules when making an ATC? Can you go outside of the card base with embellishments? I am not clear on the exact rules.

Linda M. Cain said...

These are precut tombstones but we like to embellish to our hearts content. If that overlaps, we really don't care! Generally they used to have them fit into a sleeve like baseball cards, but ATCs have progressed beyond the boundaries.

These are so fantastic! I LOVE the shape of each one...a nice deviation from the usually rectangle!
