RIP - Remembrance

Howdeeedoodleee folks!

Welcome to a lovely Monday morning (NOT) it's pi**ing down with rain and hail, black as the ace of spades out there, and I have to take the dog out in it. Mmmmm, nice.

Anyhows, today sees the start of a new theme at HDH Macabre Monday, and it's all about:

"Rest In Peace"

You are to create a dark, Gothic, or Halloween-based art piece
that has anything to do with cemeteries, coffins, headstones, or funerals.
Any and all things resting in peace. Or pieces...

I kinda blew it with this one, not scarey enough really. I used my graveyard image last week for another make, so I couldn't very well use it again two weeks in a row now could I?
So I went with another new image released the other day, 'Remembrance':

 This is a frontage. I haven't stuck it to anything, so I could use it for a card, or make a picture out of it, or a wall hanging. I have used a couple of Nestabilities dies from a new set I bought on Saturday - yes, I went craft shopping!! First time in blooming ages!! Managed to keep it under £50 too - amazing!!

 My Remembrance image is coloured with my usual watercolour pencils, scanned in and printed for fussy cutting and layering up with foam pads. Ta-da, job done. Took long enough though!! So much deciding what paper to use. Gave up in the end and stayed with blank cardstock.

So there you have it folks. Not too scarey this time!! lol
Hope you all have a great day. I'm away to go and get soaked, ugh!

Some challenges I am entering -

Craft Punked - Deepest Sympathy (hope this one fits)
Inspire Me Friday - Anything Goes
Simply Create - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Dies/Punches
