Mans Ruin Coffin

Welcome everyone to the last Wednesday of our 31 Days of Halloween extravaganza. Today is Bombshell Blog hop day and I am supe excited to be participating with them today!

The challenge for today was to use the coffin template that was provided to create your own Coffin and do it up Bombshell Style! That is exactly what I did... I had this little skeleton and thought that he would be perfect for this. I used several Bombshell sets, Mans Ruin, Bombshell Angel, Butterfly Queen, and Retro Cowgirls.

You know when you see something and you make up a little story in your mind about what happened...well thats what I did. I saw the coffin template and the skull and thought, why not use these Bombshell Pin-up on the coffin to show the reason this "man" found his way into "skeletonville". Well it made sense in my head!!! This is what I came up with. I painted the coffin black and then added my beloved grout to the inside so that it had that "fluffy" look, like the inside of a coffin. Then stamped the pin-ups in clay along with the skulls and the words Man's Ruin. I added little dots on the coffin lid with a paint pen and some bling here and there!!!

This is fantastic! I especially love the blonde gal at the foot of the coffin - I think I know how this guy ended up in an early grave.

I added you to my hop list earlier this morning. Don't feel bad - I was left off a lot of lists too. Sometimes it happens.

Your work always makes me *head slap* and wonder why the heck I didn't think of that :-)

Very well done.
